OT: Ideas as to best way to do this

My company has decided to have Google Apps handle our email. The problem is
there are some email addresses for our domain that I would like to continue
to deliver locally.

The options as I see them are:

1 - accept all email on Google Apps and then use nicknames and forward email
to the various nicknames to addresses on my mail server to be delivered

2 - receive all email on my server and then use virtusertable and/or
mailertable to pass the email on to Google Apps, delivering the rest

The downside of 1 is that at best the email is in a trash folder on Google
Apps as I do not see a way to permanently delete mail with a filter. I can
forward to a usable place and delete it but not get rid of it completely.

With option 2 I would not want to have MailScanner process, in any way, the
mail that is forwarded on to Google Apps, just the email to be delivered
locally. I do not know if there is a way to use multiple instances of
sendmail to sort the mail and pass some out to Google and the other onto
MailScanner and then get delivered locally.

Ideally I would like to do this with one computer. I could do option 2 with
a virtual server to do the sorting and then either another virtual or a real
server, on the same hardware, to deal with the local delivered mail.

Ideas you all can think of would be greatly appreciated.
