null client, and enable masquerading there. Null clients only
receive mail from local submission (and loopback:25) so doing
masquerading there is safe and natural.
The MULTI_INSTANCE_README.html document happens to contain a
reasonaly complete null-client recipe, start there and tweak to
requirements. Once configured, these stay stable.
As for mailhubs, my advice is to separate the MSA mailhub
(the one the null clients are configured to sent to), from
the MTA mailhub (the one routing internal mail to various
mailbox servers and to the outside).
The MSA mailhub can also do masquerading safely, and recipient
validation is not an issue there, it does not receive mail from
All this assumes an organization large enough that masquerading is
of some interest in the first place, and you have lots of sub-domains,
and multiple IP addresses to play with to deploy dedicated service

everything in example.com but most except a few servers which require
e-mails (list servers, some for historical reasons...) This list may
