This has been discussed countless times on this list. Look in the 
archives for filename.rules.conf or filetype.rules.conf. You basically 
set up a little ruleset which chooses between different 
filename.rules.conf files for different users. Then choose what you want 
in the different filename.rules.conf files.

It's documented in the wiki and the book as well.
