What you can do in that case is re-send the message to a spamtrap 
account, and then use action_bounce.  (This does add a Received: header, 
of course.)  You also need to add filter rules that allow anything going 
from destined for the spamtrap account to pass unmolested.

Another option is to append ./INPUTMSG to a mailbox file (be sure to add 
the "From " line and escape any From's in the message.)
