Use stream_by_domain() (check the man page for details), then skip
filter processing with ACCEPT_AND_NO_MORE_FILTERING somewhere (for
non-filtered domains) and pass everything else through the filters.

To start with, it's probably fastest to just hardcode the list of
filtered domains.

Get your mouse off of there!  You don't know where that email has been!
