Perhaps it would help if you re-stated what it is you want, and
explain why this isn't a part of the solution.  Using an Exim
.forward file allows you to filter your mail into any number of
separate mailfolders at delivery time, based on a wide range of
criteria including the contents of the headers.

If you don't want all mail delivered to a single mailbox, and you
don't want mail delivered to several mailboxes belonging to
different mail users, and you don't want mail delivered to
several mailboxes all belonging to the same user, what is it you
*do* want?
