Might I suggest "not to scan e-mail from 127.0.0.1 and to:yourdomain.com" just to avoid a bad script from being (mis)used to send e-mail out from your server onto third parties? You *usually* don't release mail to third parties, and in such exceptions you might want to make additional exceptions for those third parties.

>> Hi everybody, does anyone know if it is possible to "release" an email and queue it in the sendmail outbound queue without being processed by MailScanner? I want to avoid MS because it generates a duplicated record in the DB. We used Mailwatch release method for some time and then a custom script to feed the released email to sendmail, but both options makes the email to be reprocesed by MS.
