There's a series of drop-in replacements for scripts from Matt's Script 
Archive, called "Not Matt's Scripts" (NMS for short). Found at 
http://nms-cgi.sourceforge.net/, they include a FormMail replacement. Their 
"compatible" version, 
http://nms-cgi.sourceforge.net/formmail_compat-3.09c1/, should do what you 
want -- the README file in that directory details the configuration, which 
should make it clear that you can restrict the script's operation in all 
kinds of groovy ways.
