Scanning outbound mail?

We currently don't use MailScanner to scan outbound mail -- we only scan
inbound messages. We do use clamav with some of the sanesecurity DBs on
outbound but that's it. Scanning outbound mail would be problematic
because of false positives and differing requirements. For example, I
don't want to bounce spam detected messages on inbound but on outbound
it would probably be a requirement so that the sender (one of our users)
would know that their message wasn't sent.
So, I'm trying to get a feel for what other sites do. Do you use
MailScanner for outbound mail? If so how do you handle messages that
are rejected? Do you bounce it or just ignore it or what?
I appreciate any input or advise anyone wants to offer.
