I've been running exim on Debian for approx. 3 weeks now.

We do virtual domains with POP3 here by using a custom local mailer 
and a modified version of qpopper.

The first step is to create a virtual_pop transport, then a virtual_pop 
director, e.g.

  domains = partial-dbm;/etc/virtual-domains,
  driver = smartuser,
  transport = virtual_pop;

In /etc/virtual-domains you list the relevant domains, one per line and 
then use exim_dbmbuild.
