As others already said, there is no 'Host: ' like in HTTP/1.x  so  users
have to put their entire mail address as a login.

The  Vhffs  subsystem  (Virtual  Hosting  For  Free  Software,  used  on
TuxFamily.org, a free software hosting service) uses exim  +  courier  +
mysql for providing multidomain pop/imap/webmail (ssl  or  not)  without
filling the passwd file with crap :)

You can just get the packages  as  examples  (Vhffs  is  actually  at  a
experimental devel stage...) at: 

deb      ftp://ftp.vhffs.org/debian             vhffs      main
deb-src  ftp://ftp.vhffs.org/debian             vhffs      main
