I am sure you are right.. I was just hoping there might have been a port which 
would do something like..

trap all outgoing mail from the server - irrespective of the mta pas it 
through a filer and dump it in a file until you have had a chance to inspect 
it. Bearing in mind mail can come from multiple sources such a port would 
have been useful.

Apologies for generating too much traffic
