I do not believe this is possible with ipfilter, iproute2 maybe be able
to help, by routing traffic based on source IP address.
Why not use multiple internal nics and network addresses or limit the
amount of bandwidth available to FTP / SMTP traffic.
If you only allowed FTP to use a maximum of 10% of the total bandwidth,
that would solve the problem.
