Well, that depends. If you use cyrus virtual domains support, it's 
quite usual. And actually - I don't really see where the problem should 
be as the only system in question is cyrus.
In order to do that, you have to switch one option whose name I don't 
have in mind. It's referenced in the virtual domain support readme 
though, so you can start there.
