As already suspected below, I still have a few clients who are sending 
e-mail to port 25. I would like to disable authentication for port 25 
but it's no option at the moment.

SkipAuthenticated ^.*$

does what I want, thank you! Well, actually it would be perfect if 
"incoming local mail" would be scanned too, i.e.

sending auth mail from any port -> DO NOT SCAN
receiving mail (port 25) -> SCAN

In my opinion, it doesn't make any sense to scan e-mail leaving the 
server. The recipient will never trust these tags anyway. So why scan at 
all? It's important to scan incoming mail, be it from a local or an 
external client.
