There is an option in MailScanner.conf after version 4.02-1.  Can't
remember the name of the option though.

Rulesets are configured top to bottom.  So put a line that says

notme at                no                     /var/archive

Or however something along those lines.

Ah yes, now i see it :)

Two questions-- any way to save it in one file/message, (ie not qf+df)
Also, is there a way to do * /var/archive but not for
notme at
