archive mails only as queue files?

Hi all,

I'm trying to store all incoming mails to a certain address on my
disk. The rule part (which mails should be stored) is no problem but I
have a problem with the format in which the mails are stored.

Currently I wrote in my MailScanner.conf:
> Archive Mail = /var/spool/MailScanner/archive/

But then MailScanner archives all mails in my exim queue format. :-(
What I try to achieve is that the mail is stored in the Maildir format
or at least in the mbox format when the mbox MAY NOT EXIST.

In the archives I found a pointer from Julian to
> Quarantine Whole Messages As Queue Files = no
but that doesn't change anything for mail archiving.

Is it currently possible with MailScanner?
