Let me correct:

FromOrTo: john at /etc/MailScanner/special.conf
FromOrTo: bob at /etc/MailScanner/special.conf
FromOrTo: paul at /etc/MailScanner/special.conf
FromOrTo: * /etc/MailScanner/abc_general.conf
FromOrTo: default /etc/MailScanner/general.conf

I used to have a default rule like you said and it used to be:
john,bob and paul were ruled by special.conf
another_users at ruled by abc_general.conf
*@* ruled by general.conf

This policy worked perfectly on MailScanner 4.21-9.
