Hey Reis,
Thanks for reaching out. This isn't currently supported in SmarterMail, so I went ahead and changed your Question to a Proposed Idea. Other users who agree with this implementation can show their support and get it in front of the developers. 
As someone not-so-technical and unfamiliar with what this is, can you give a quick rundown? Having a better idea of what it entails could also help other users to know if this is something they'd like to see as well.

BATV would reduce/eliminate bounced messages from messages you didn't send, but your email address was used as the sending or reply to address. See:
Every week or so we have an unlucky customer whose email address gets picked up by a spammer (or malware) and it blasts out thousands of messages to random people.  Our customer receives hundreds of undeliverable messages because the recipient doesn't exist, mailbox full, etc.
BATV would be a nice feature to add. Thumbs Up!
We too would like to see this feature implemented!
Hello Andrea,
The GreyList feature in the SM 14.5 does not support this. All messages from some IP that use the BATV becomes always in the greylist block period.
Best Regards, Cleber
