If there is demand for it, then yes. If you would be interested in
such a feature please create a jira issue asking for it.

SMTPAppender which shares similarities with SiftingAppender, will
discard buffers when an a logging event with the marker
"FINALIZE_SESSION" is encountered. See [1, 2]. So it would be quite
easy to add functionality to immediately discard and appender upon an
event determined by the developer.
