You might take a look at this page:
and see if you can glean anything from it.

It's redhat centric, but ignoring the installation details there may be some good ideas there.  Specifically, he uses a MySQL database for reporting and such.  It might be that MailScanner can incorporate that and query it for appropriate processing.

I haven't looked closely at it - it may not be practical, but figured I'd toss it out as a possible direction to look into...
