Amavis-NG or even amavis-new. Something that'll do SMTP filtering. Then,
set "content_filter = smtp:localhost:10025" somewhere in the main
configuration, and set up a listener on localhost 10026 to receive mail
back, but force it not to have a content filter. Anyways, this is all well
documented somewhere in the documentation for postfix :-)
