What I sometimes recommend for situations like 38865 is this: (Note: Probably too difficult for most of our customers.

1) Make a secret subdomain like: and don't give it out.

2) Have mail for that domain go directly to your back-end server

3) Configure all your monitoring tools to send to an address in that domain

4) Configure your back-end server to properly handle mail for that domain.

That takes one component (CanIt) that could delay mail out of the path.
