    You may be able to pull it off by concatenating mail delivery mechanisms.
    Postfix has no general concatenation method. Instead, such a method
    is built into the local delivery agent:

        mailbox_transport = maildrop

    or something like that.

    This requires that the user account exists in the UNIX passwd file.

    virtual aliases can do forwarding etc, but they can't deliver
    directly to file or command.
