Mail conditional filtering and archiving

You can use the "Is Definitely Spam" setting in MailScanner.conf.

The option will be somthing like this:
Is Definitely Spam = %rules-dir%/spam.blacklist.rules

Edit that file and insert this:
To: ripper at    yes

All messages addressed to that mail will be flagged as SPAM and will
be put in quarantine if you have defined that High score spam will be

You can review them and release if you want to.

I hope this helps.
