Which patterns do you mean ?
Querys which pass back patterns ?
It sounds very tricky.
What do you wish to do (circumstantiate; concretely) ?

1. Do you talking about a per user mailrouting ?

You have to keep the list of mailrouters into the DIT.
Second you need an attribute which holds the current mailroute for every user.
The MTA must evaluate this mailroute instead of a static mailrouter list.
I think this is a little bit tricky to configure into the MTAs configuration,
but it should be possible.

2. Or dou you wanne store the incoming mail into elegible mailboxes ?

In this case you can simply set the (other)mailbox attribute to a default value.
Thats all, I think.
