Fine. But why do you want to use MS in addition? It does not reject 
anything, it works after the MTA phase. It doesn't make much sense to use 
that milter *and* MS at the same time. If you are happy with that milter, 
keep on using it and forget about MS.

You do not read or understand. Tests that are based on headers that are 
not present in the incoming mail and that are added by the MTA because of 
this *cannot* be detected as missing by MS.

it doesn't. Your new one isn't able to pick up the pre file that contains 
the extra plugin info.
