A couple of ideers:

If the file doesn't change much (and isn't
large), maybe write an m4-or-something
script that builds a filter file with the
target values hardcoded--possibly a series
of ifs or a single long delimited target
string for one contains test.

The pipe command might be a useful
mechanism.  Send all candidate messages
(hopefully, there is a way to roughly
qualify messages for this process) to
a pipe that checks against your file.
The pipe could add a header to the
message that indicates the result of the
test, then resubmit the message to exim.

Neither of these sounds all that great so
I hope you receive a more intelligent
response from someone else.
