This is one of the things that drove me CRAZY about Post.Office. You
had to kludge the pop accounts for support, info, etc for all your
virtual domains to be whacky. We put a nice PP200 up with NTMail,
IIS 3.0, etc, and use the IP addresses in coordination and it
works great for spoofing an entire domain reasonably.
