I have probably missed something completely obvious that makes this problem much more difficult than I can see, but I use a ruleset based on 
the "Reject Message = no" entry in the MailScanner.conf file which works well.

I changed the MailScanner.conf file to say:  Reject Message = %rules-dir%/reject.rules.

Then in the rules directory I have a file called reject.rules which contains entries like:

To:  user1 at and From: * no
To:  user1 at yes
To: default no

The README file in the MailScanner/rules directory contains all the ruleset instructions and the EXAMPLES file is excellent for ideas on using 

All the best,
