See the "filename.rules.conf" and "filetype.rules.conf" files and their 
"archive.*" counterparts. You can create a ruleset which uses different 
files like "filename.rules.conf"/"filetype.rules.conf" for different 
users and domains. This is one of the most commonly-asked questions, so 
I strongly suspect you will find the answer in the Wiki.

Take a look at MailWatch.
