IIRC i works OK, as long as one remembers that "multi-recipient"
emails will only get the specific values for the _first_ recipient. If
that one hasn't got a specific value, the defaults will be used
(either per domain, or for the user "admin" (glocal value).

If you enable this type of thing, you need make sure to have set your
MTA up to split incoming mail so that a multi-recipient mail will
become one mail/recipient. Also turn on the SA cache, if not already
done, to alleviate any performance hit this "splitting" will incur.
