      I don't expect the proxy in question to ever be part of Postfix. Postfix
      supports at least 4 extension mechanisms:

      - Post-queue content filters
      - Pre-queue proxy filters
      - Milters
      - Policy servers

      It is up to the Postfix community and vendors to create add-on tools
      that make use of these features. So I don't see a "buit-in" archive
      feature any time soon.

      The right mechanism leaves this choice to the administrator, the
      archive copy is created and queued, after that you can deliver it
      where-ever you want (configure the archive Postfix instance transport
      rules accoringly). It would be wrong to make delivery decisions in the
      archive module, they would never be sufficiently comprehensive.
