This was discussed earlier without any conclusions and you were a part
of the thread..
One possible way i see it being done is a hack to split messages per
recipient after being deposited in the hold directory. A separate
process will pickup messages from /var/spool/postfix/hold, effectively
split them and then put them in another hold directory say
/var/spool/postfix/holdms (which can be used as the postfix incoming dir
parameter in MS.conf). Perhaps a plugin / custom function that can do
this (any perl gurus wanting to work on this?)??
In any case i see an increase in resources used since it'll require:
a. resources to effectively split the message and create an unique
queue-id for each message.
b. logging this split to syslog (IO)
c. to move messages (more IO)
d. MailScanner to work on more messages
This functionality is also a TODO for amavisd-new (check towards the end
of this page http://www.ijs.si/software/amavisd/TODO.txt)
Your best bet is to try what Ugo is doing.. evaluate exim ;-)
