Well, this is a bit like when you need to split messages/recipient...
That also happens well after MailScanner. So the somewhat convoluted
solution is to configure two postfix instances, where the first one
does the DSPAM thing and then pass it on to the second one, that does
the MailScanner bit. Look at the wiki page
for an example of what it'd entail.

Another option might be to try use the Generic Scanner thing in
MailScanner, to script DSPAM in that way... I've seen it suggested
before, but I don't think I've seen anyone actually DO it:-).
