    I don't have a solution, but I think you probably want to look at
    spammer-tools to do what you want. The sorts of actions that you want to do
    is not something normal mail-originating programs nor mail routers would
    ever want to do, but is very plausible for spammers, so you may want to
    start there.

    Though, I do have to note that if you are able to work around your corporate
    filter, you are coming really close to hacking the filter (and with a
    spammer's tool indeed), so I would be careful about the legal

    This has nothing directly to do with MS Proxy2 but the news group is called
    Microsoft.public.proxy, not microsoft.public.MSproxy2 so it appears to be
    about proxies in general and that might very well apply to my problem.
    I pointed out that think there is some kind of filter or routing system on a
    corporate server where much of the mail is bound that filters out non-us
    originating mail.  They won't touch their system and my boss told me to work
    around it.
    As for being a spammer, you can't do a lot of smamming with the 50 to 150
    mails per day that we need to send.
    So do you have any solution?
