Is there any recommendation on a product that i could use to do Outbound email scanning, to gleam off the sender and recipient email address's and then add them to the senders whitelist.

also interested in others thoughts on this as it would mean that we would be increasing our internal traffic as we are not just dealling with our outside domains incoming messages but also now dealing with there outbound.

When I trialled MailMarshal I found it had this feature. It certainly builds a big list quickly for us. I do think its a worthwhile option to be able to toggle on. May not be applicable to everyones way of working but as an option I'd use it.

We do this using MS LogParser in vbs scripts against our Smartermail outbound gateway logs every 5 minutes to get sender|reciever pairs for populating the autowhitelistforcedelivery tabl;e .
We also added a date field in our tblwl_autowhitelistforcedelivery table that gets updated every time a new email is sent out and picked up with our logparser script or a new whitelisted email comes in (we parse the incoming spamfilter logs as well for whitelisted sender|receiver entries). We hope to start using that date as an indicator  to delete that sender|receiver entry if it has not been updated in 6 months time (either being sent out or emails coming in). Often customers send an email to someone once and never again and it start to really add to the size of the table over time. Once you have close to 10k users it really starts to grow. By parsing the outgoing mail and adding it to the tblwl_autowhitelistforcedelivery table you also cut down on the number of items that end up in quarantine.
