What about `dccifd -t type,[log-thold,]rej-thold]`
Or easier, DCCIFD_REJECT_AT in /var/dcc/dcc_conf?

dccifd is like dcccm, which is why the default value of
DCCIFD_REJECT_AT in /var/dcc/dcc_conf is $DCCM_REJECT_AT.

Oh!  You want per-user thresholds in dccm, and so by shared code,
also in dccm.  They're on my to-do list.

If you really want "per domain" instead "per user" thresholds,
I don't see how to specify it.  
Could you ask a different instance of dccifd via a different
TCP or UNIX-domain socket for each mail domain?
