SMTP AUTH is no magic solution, you'd have to start routing mail by
sender instead of recipient.
Take myself, sharing a computer at home with somebody else who uses a
completely different domain for her e-mail. Currently I simply take
all mail and throw it to my current internet access provider's
smarthost. I would have to change the mail routing to send mail from
me to smarthost A and mail from the other person to smarthost B.
Even myself alone uses different domains for my mail, e.g. very rarely
 Yes, I change them.
