Anything is possible, this is just SMOP ;)

Your best bet, sendmail wise, would be to use a Mail fILTER (milter),
which can be written in just about any language (C/Perl the easiest) -
and has a chance to peruse *ALL* mail comming into a server.

You could have the milter do different things based upon
sender/recipient, content type, etc.  This is where you'd add
disclaimers to email (but you'd have to be a sado masochist to it -
that way lie dragons)
