	You could probably configure postfix to use a different local 
delivery agent, one that was configured to munge all addresses 
appropriately, before handling as would previously have been done.

	Regardless how you do it, you've got a fair amount of program 
writing to do.

	Then you may well be permanently screwed, depending on how much 
damage their servers cause to the e-mail addresses in question.
