This sounds like a simple case of setting smtpserver up to use a 
non-standard router directory.  Somewhere the router doesn't pickup 
"$POSTOFFICE/myrouter/".  It maybe possible to achieve this by changing 
an environment variable or two around the smtpserver.

Have your task process the message (possible modifying it) then rename 
it into the standard router directory "$POSTOFFICE/router/".

What additional metadata are you wanting to see in the message that 
isn't already in the router pickup file ?
