This is only valid in the Incoming Queue Dir option, as explained in the
comments in the MailScanner.conf file.

The ruleset /etc/MailScanner/rules/mqueue.out.rules should look like this:
To:     domain1.com             /var/spool/mqueue.domain1
To:     *@domain2.com   /var/spool/mqueue.domain2
FromOrTo:       default         /var/spool/mqueue

This will put mail for domain1.com into 1 directory, mail for domain2.com
into another, and everything else into a third. You will then need to run
sendmail "queue runners" for each of the outgoing queue directories.
