Connecting messages to external pools is a bit clunky

In the situation where I have an external 'black box' pool, When trying to connect messages from processes to an external pool itself (not objects within the pool) the connection points are hard to find, and I never seem to be able to connect to the first 10% of the pool (annoying if the process starts with 'message from 3rd party')

Dear Jeff,

In this example a company decided to diagram the Purchase Process interacting with the process performed by your suppliers.The two processes are independent but information flows constantly via messages (phone calls, emails, etc.).Each company needs information from the other to successfully complete the process.

By doing the same for the send and receive invoice activities, the diagram showing collaboration will be finished.
