Absolutely right and silly of me not to think of it.

Right again and that is the way I used to use SpamAssassin. Don't want
to go there again!

Am I right in thinking that a message to multiple recipients is not
"split into separate messages" until until the local delivery agent is
called? If so, might it be possible to write another delivery agent that
is only called if the message has multiple recipients. This new delivery
agent would simply deliver the individual (split) messages to the
incoming MailScanner directory.
