search the archives
and see    /etc/MailScanner/rules/*

not tested and no guarantee.
please correct me if i am wrong i have no great experiences with rules.
i prefer [tab] as delimiter in all rules

##Filename Rules = %etc-dir%/filename.rules.conf
Filename Rules = %etc-dir%/filename.rules

FromOrTo:    user1 at sld.tld    %etc-dir%/rules/user.conf
FromOrTo:    user2 at sld.tld    %etc-dir%/rules/user.conf
FromOrTo:    default        %etc-dir%/filename.rules.conf

allow   \.zip$   -   -

jump to  "filename.rules"
if  user[12]@sld.tld"  go to  "user.conf"
zip is allowed
default go to  "filename.rules.conf"

restart / reload mailscanner
# service MailScanner restart
check the logs
# tail -f /var/log/maillog
and test it
