You could use sieve to do it (create an account sales and create a
sieve script that drops all mails into john's mailbox; sales must have
post permissions for john's mailbox to do that).
Probably the MTA is the better place, as michael said. (e.g. in Postfix
you could use the virtual_aliases transport to do that and
virtual_mailbox transport for the actual delivery to cyrus. I'm sure
other mailers have similar functions.
