just message routing, so the header is not added.
To add an X-Original-Recipient header, messages to multiple recipients
have to be split into one copy per-recipient since the header you want
Since the queue file contains a single copy of the message for all
recipients, such rewriting *cannot* happen on input, it can only happen on
output via a delivery agent that is processing a single recipient. This
means you need a custom transport for this destination that processes
mail one recipient at a time and prepends the header.
This can be done via an external program via pipe(8) or by modifying the
source code of the smtp(8) delivery agent so that the header is added when
a suitable boolean flag is set and the message has exactly one recipient.
The pipe(8) approach would then re-submit the mail for outbound delivery
to a different Postfix instance to avoid loops.
