I'm not sure what you want to do, but if you want to filter spam, you
shouldn't multiply it. Notifying target user and sending a copy to other
ppl is quite unnecessary and waste of bandwidth.
Trying to notify the sender may be unnecessary too: spammers use 
non-existing mailbox names and if you generate an automaticed reply,
your mailbox get's filled with Mail Deliverity Errors. In the other
side, in this case sender gets a report message, lowering the risk
you miss something important.
