I'm using postfix 2.1 on a sarge and I have installed mailscanner

I'd like to filter  mail by extension and by user but i don't find how 
to do this ...
Clearly a user "tata" can send an attachments .xls, .doc, .exe, .ppt  
and a user "toto" can only send .doc for example.

So to filter mail by extension with mailscanner it's not a big probleme, 
but I don't find any way to associate a list of extension with a list of 
users ... The extensions filters rules don't seem to support  this ?

Perhaps I have miss a parametters (I hope)

Any idea please ?
