Sure slocal has this ability, kinda. Here's a smattering of the
filter rules I use for netbsd (and a bunch of other lists):
Sender firstname.lastname@example.org | ? "/usr/local/lib/mh/rcvstore +a/netbsd-current"
Sender email@example.com | ? "/usr/local/lib/mh/rcvstore +a/netbsd-current"
Keep in mind that Sender isn't an envelope address. It is in the
headers themselves that are sent over as part of the mail. A less
reliable way would be to use the return-path which tends (I've
discovered) to be less dependable than the Sender line.
slocal also gives you the ability to specify "addr" as the "header"
part of the line, which I suppose you could use to filter on....
I've had to change the owner- to -owner once before, so this time I
left them both in :-).
