MailScanner - different file rules for inbound and outbound mail


I have a Mailscanner/Sendmail/Spamassasin solution in place and it's working well. I use this to filter inbound mail, outbound mail is handled by our internal
mail server.
I want to change this so that the M/S/S server handles all inbound and outbound mail but i need to have a different rule set of allowable outbound mail. As an example
we do not allow various file types inbound but at times we do need to send them out.
Can i have different rules for inbound/outbound mail?

Thanks.

Yes, you can do that. Like virus or spam checks filetype scanning can be a rule set. See  http://www.sng.ecs.soton.ac.uk/mailscanner/serve/cache/248.html for an example of rules to bypass filtering for local mail.
