Someone please help me understand the filtering basics

Unanswered Question

I need to notify selected senders that they have to change their account config (we're moving all to authenticated smtp).
I have the list of senders to be notified and the message filtering documentation, how do I proceed in general terms (filter + rule + policy etc?? - documentation is too into details to help me understanding the general working)?

I have this problem too.

a very basic notification could be done by using an Outgoing Content Filter which has a condition of "Envelope Sender - Matches term in dictionary - " and Action: "Notify - Sender - Notify template:"

- this simple content filter does not check if the user received this notification already - he will get the message every time he sends an email.
- the filter does not check if the connection was already authenticated smtp - perhaps use differnt listeners and check for correct listener in Conditions
