Actually, it should be possible to do with Postfix, but the problem is
that that split would happen _after_ MS reinjects the mails into the
incoming queue... So it'd be a bit pointless. What one *could* do (if
one feels up to it) is to implement a kind of dual-PF setup where the
first just fronts, splits and passes on to the second... that would
use the HOLD thing as usual... Not really a nice solution, but perhaps
workable, if one *really* needs this.
The flow would be something like:
[OTHER HOST] -> PF1 -> PF2 -> MS -> PF2 -> [DESTINATION]
(slight shudder)

Now now, calm down. Take a deep breath... Look in the mirror and
repeat after me "Postfix is good for me... Postfix is good for me
