Multiple directories with priority

I am trying to figure out how can I set up MailScanner & sendmail this way
that I'll be able to have 2 separated directories.

I have one email account through which I send news letters (20-40k emails)
and other emails that I use for regular emails.

The problem is when the newsletter being send out it fills
and mail can not be delivered before MailScanner scans all 20-40k emails.

I saw posts here that people were able to configure different outgoing queues (fast, slow)
But I think that the bottleneck is SPAM and Virus scanning in Mailscanner. So I want to separate
queues before it gets to MailScanner processing
What I would like to achieve is have a and
so that regular mail goes to and newsletter mail will go to
and have some mechanism to move messages from and to MailScanner for processing and delivery, or have MailScanner process both directories with some priority.
This way regular mail won't stack in waiting to be delivered only after all newsletters have been delivered.

Have anyone was able to achieve something similar to what I am trying to achieve.
Am I missing something ?
Any ideas ?
