I guess i can, but these customers are really not technical they just
want to get their mails send. explaining the situation to them will be
like teaching rocket science to a kindergarten.

Thats not something i have considered, but if i can run spam/virus scan
on outgoing mails maybe this will reduce this problem. i understand that
will also cause a lot of load on my servers, but atleast i will not

expect our mail servers and usually ask the customer to get professional
