Rule to BCC recipients

Hi list,

I'm running MailScanner-4.67.6-1 + Sendmail 8.14.xx + ClamAV and it has been
a great help to scan +200k mails.

Due to the high rate of email to unknown users (~80%), I had to change the
"Scan Messages" and "Virus Scanning" to rules file:

I've created a list of email addresses based on passwd + aliases file to
force scans on these email addresses only and, by default, the rest is not
scanned because they're being redirected to /dev/null .

The rule says:

To: user at yes

But email addresses in BCC are not checked at all.
Let's say a message enters the system TO user unknown at and to
validuser at in BCC. The message to unknown at is discarded
and the one to validuser at is delivered with no scan at all because
it did not match any rule to do it.

My question is, is there any way to include the BCC addresses in those rules

Thanks and congratulations for the best mail filter around.
