Well, inside filter_recipient, you can write the recipient to a file.
For example:

sub filter_recipient
	my($recipient, $sender, $rest_of_the_junk) = @_;
	if (open(RECIPFILE, '>>all_recipients')) {
	        print RECIPFILE "$recipient\n";
        # Rest of filter_recipient goes here

and then in filter_begin, you can read the list of recipients out
of all_recipients in the current directory.

If (as recommended) you're running /var/spool/MIMEDefang on a ramdisk,
writing stuff out to a file and reading it back later isn't all that bad.
