Sorry I've misread your question. You said that you wanted to divert 
mail _for_ a particular user. That implies that you want to process 
outgoing mail, which you won't do with AntiSpam.

If you want to trap incoming mail from a particular sender then you 
just need a rule or rules like

 DIVERT From: = *sender*
 DIVERT Sender: = *sender*

where *sender* uniquely matches the sender's address.
