    Here is my problem, MailScanner scans all emails regardless of from where they are received.

    Some of my customers send email through the server from their dial-up/dynamic ISP connections. Some of these customers generate emails which trigger SA rules which score the email close to or above the minimum score to be considered spam.

    Here are the scores from one customer who simply said "Hi there." in an email test to me:

    SpamAssassin (score=3.268,
    required 5.25, AWL -0.35, BAYES_20 -1.95, HELO_DYNAMIC_IPADDR2 3.50,
    RCVD_IN_NJABL_DUL 0.09, RCVD_IN_SORBS_DUL 1.99)

    Is there some way I can make MailScanner see these emails from auth senders as being trusted/whitelisted?
    :(

    Yes, but the problem is... this only deals with outgoing email to domains not hosted on the server... some of my customers are companies which use the email also for communication between employees, thus the To: and From: will both be the same domain.

    That's no problem. You can just use FromAndTo: for the domain and set it to no, or used the spam.whitelist.rules file and put FromAndTo: in it for the domain.

    So if I have two separate domains hosted that frequently pass email between them and I never want such checked for spam, I could say:

    FromOrTo: company1.com And FromOrTo: company2.com no​

    ?
