Right, W/ The procmail (local mailbox) solution, some users would get a
tagged subject-line while others would not.
W/ a gateway solution, this may not be possible.
Or... You'd have to figure out if/when the mail needed to be split into
multiple queue files... That sounds more like the job of an MTA...
Sorry, I don't have an idea of the "right" way to do that.

A related issue w/ procmail/local delivery that you might not have w/ a
gateway/MailScanner solution:
Multiple e-mail aliases per user.

Mail sent from " at" AND "lname at" is
associated w/ a mailbox named "lname". I had to do a bunch of manual
configs to get the outbound recip. address written to the right
local-user database/file. That way, procmail could check one file for
the "lname" user at delivery time.
