You can do that already with a ruleset.
In MailScanner.conf, set
Filename Rules = /etc/MailScanner/rules/filename.rules
In filename.rules, set
From: user1 at domain.com /etc/MailScanner/filename.rules.allow.conf
To: user2 at other.com /etc/MailScanner/filename.rules.allow.conf
FromOrTo: default /etc/MailScanner/filename.rules.conf
Then make the first line of filename.rules.allow.conf to be
allow \.exe$ - -
Then *.exe attachments from user1 at domain.com or to user2 at other.com will be
allowed, but not for any other addresses.
