This is exactly the same problem you have when using my little ...
well, Pete Russell called it "hackish"... solution to split mails into
one/recipient. So if you look at the notes at the end of that wiki
page, you'll find a solution for this problem, based around submitting
mails to another smtpd listener on a high port... that doesn't include
the header checks...
Look at
