He didn't specify this, but I'd guess that he also wants this action
associated with a 'direction' of mail flow, like all outbound messages.

That doesn't work if you are sending - but you could direct outbound
mail through a different server than inbound to control the impact and
make it easier to determine which way the message is headed.
