They will not solve the problem we discuss at the moment in this thread. We
are talking about dealing with tenants in a pre queue setup. None of the
existing solutions, neither SMTP filters nor MILTERS, are capable to ACCEPT
messages for one recipient and REJECT it for the other within the same

That's not a problem of SMTP filters or MILTERS, but a limitation of the SMTP
protocol. PRDR, as mentioned before in this thread, could solve the problem.
