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
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
