Yes. Just create an appropriate rule file (Don't forget it must end 
.rules) e.g.
user1 at   delete (Don't bounce unless you know the sender. The 
only time I bounce is when I have manually black listed a sender and 
therefore know if they exist or are a forgery)
user2 at   deliver

This can be done using any of the available options as shown in the 
MailScanner.conf file. Last thing to do is set the spam actions = to be 
/path/to/rule file.rules
