Variable "welcome" message

In a scenario with 2 or more domains, the "welcome message" is the same for each domain contacted.
Would be optimum have such a %domain% variable in the welcome string to sendout the correct domain contacted.

e.g.

Welcome at %domain% mail system -> Welcome at ACME.com mail system

on some server (winsbs) the locatio where the spamassassin test .tmp file is located does not allow to copy out the file (security reasons). I think would be better to write it in a safer location e.g. a subdir of HMS install dir :)
