Exim has full-featured address rewriting. The default debian
configuration allows you to put "outgoing" email addresses for users in
/etc/email-addresses . /etc/aliases allows you to configure aliases for
inbound mail. I think these are exactly what you're looking for. (BTW,
just about any MTA should be able to do this type of thing; it's just
easier in Exim =)
