You might need to look into address rewriting in that case, always bcc is part of that, but there is a lot more you can do. – NickW May 15 '13 at 8:13
Yes it can, but you need to read up a little to decide which method is best for you, is the domain you want to send to external (not hosted on the same machine)? You might want to use virtual alias maps if not, you may just want a normal alias.. – NickW May 15 '13 at 9:30
