RE: agent for mail.box

Agents will not run in mail.box.

If you want to do anything with messages as they are deposited in mail.box, you will have to use the Notes C API. This is not easy. In fact, minor mistakes can crash the router or the entire server. Even if you manage to avoid that, you can slow down mail routing performance if you do not do it the right way. (The right way is generally to create a server task and a separate small DLL. The DLL uses EM routines to hook the events, immediately place new messages on hold, and send a signal to the server task. The task itself does the rest of the work and releases the hold (or deletes the message from mail.box) when it has done all of its work. You will need to do extensive and very careful QA in a test environment that can simulate your traffic levels for a long period of time in order to have confidence in your solution.

You would be far, far better off contacting the established third-party vendors who sell mail management software for Domino and checking into whether you can buy a solution that does what you want and is already coded and extensively tested.
