I don't want to move away from Exim unless there are serious (or even 
compelling) reasons to do so.

I've had a look at the Exim config -- this sort of virtual domains seems 
relatively easy with Exim, too. You create a file for every domain you handle 
that contains the list of valid localparts. Exim then delivers incoming mail 
into mailbox files under a directory /var/mail/<domain/.

I read that Cyrus doesn't use mailbox files. This is a "con," IMHO, because 
that way I can't easily browse mail using "mutt" (or can I?!)

There doesn't seem to be a Debian package available?!

At least it's a good start to look at. :-)

Thanks so far,
