I've had the same problem, and my workaround was to configure a different 
identity for each transport I need to use.  I set a "special transport" on 
the identity's "Advanced" tab.

Changing identities is as easy as rolling the mouse wheel, so this isn't too 
annoying.  (Silvan@old.isp Silvan@new.isp Silvan@independant.mail.provider 
Silvan@local.mail etc.)

I just tested this, and it does work.  I sent out a message to a completely 
bogus address three times, using three different identities, and thus three 
different transports.  I got bounce messages from the expected server in all 
three cases.
