No. Scan Messages is a "All Match" ruleset, so if any of the  
recipients want it scanned, it will be scanned. All recipients will  
get the scanned message.

MailScanner does not divide up messages into several different  
messages for different recipients, there is only ever 1 message with  
all the recipients on it.
