Delivering disinfected mails depending on destination e-mail address.

Hi to all.

I'm going to describe a real scenario, I think there's no way to solve it with the current mailscanner version, so may be Julian could add this feature to a next version, or someone could tell me one good solution that does not depend on mailscanner.

Of the dozens of e-mail aliases we have, there's one that is used to put it on all our websites as a "contact at", therefore, it's targeted by all Virus and worms on the wild. So this mail alias gets hundreds of viruses per day. What I want to do is applying the below configuration option, but based on destination e-mail address, so the "contact at" doesn't recieve the disinfected mails, but all the other aliases still recieves them.

# Once we have removed viruses from an email message and replaced them with
# VirusWarning.txt attachments, should we deliver the clean result to the
# original recipients (or just delete them if "no")?
Deliver To Recipients = yes

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
