You can add a ruleset to virtually everything in MailScanner.conf, so
you can create incredibly complicated configuration systems if you want
to. Different values for different arbitrary groups of email addresses
(it even supports full regular expressions) for different configuration

Rulesets aren't specific to MCP Checks or anything, they are a general
topic and are (I believe) fairly well documented.

Have you considered buying the book? It's got loads of useful stuff like
this in it. And a bargain at only $39.95. You can buy it (cheapest and
fastest) straight off
