Like I said, I think this is a very very bad idea.

Now that it is dynamic DSL, I need to relay this mail through the mail scanner at Business A without the other people I have designated as MailWatch Admins in Business A, having the ability see this e-mail at all.  I have an account in the mail scanner setup so I can do SMTP AUTH with TLS.  That works great but ALL incoming mail is scanned unless I add FROM: domain.com no to the scan.messages.rules.  When I do that I get spam from outside sources because it isn't being scanned.
