Sender Priorities

We are using sendmail as our mta. I do have some scripts that we may be able to manually move the messages with. I was hoping for something we could do via sendmail automatically.

I think the OP wants to skip MailScanner completely rather than just
telling MailScanner to not scan the message. Thus, this would have to be
done in the MTA and how to do it would depend on the MTA.

Our emergency notification system sends through the same edge boxes as all of our other external mail.  This is not a good thing and we would rather send from internally, but the powers that be decided to outsource emergency notifications vs. something we could easily do.
