Granted that is a good point, problem is that our guys have gone through a lot to get these companies to send us data, that with out it the business starts to fail.  SO that being said kind of can't take the approach of they will eventually fix it.  And yes the MTA is currently dealing with it but I am wondering if I comment out that option and allow the message to go through will MS be able to take that message and out it into quarantine

Where is it being blocked? Usually your  MTA would handle that. If they don't comply with the rules, the bounced messages should be enough for their admins to fix the issue. I wouldn't see it as your responsibility to fix other companies errors.

We simply block all non compliant servers. Eventually they'll get them fixed.

So my company is starting to deal with a lot of smaller companies and I am running into an issue of e-mails being rejected due to the HELO command coming back incorrect from the incoming e-mail.  I know this is a simple fix and we have fixed this issue for several companies but that is time consuming, and will become impossible as business grows.  Is there a way to for Mail Scanner to take the rejected e-mails and place them in a folder like quarantine or even the quarantined folder?  If I change the reject message to a rule set how would I set up the rule to say (any rejected e-mail place in FOLDER...)  using MS 4.84.5, with clamd, spamassassin on CENTOS 6.2 in case you need this as well.
