For anybody else that comes along, I discovered 2 methods to easily do what I wanted.
Enable envelope_sender masquerading (non-default behaviour).
edit masquerade_classes to include envelope_recipient, for example:
masquerade_classes = envelope_sender, envelope_recipient, header_sender, header_recipient
masquerade_domains = $mydomain
masquerade_exceptions = root, mailer-daemon, logwatch
This method can provide significantly greater flexibility, but bypasses all local delivery attempts including alias expansion, so any aliases need to be defined in /etc/postfix/virtual and the regexp needs to exclude it (from my minimal testing of this method)
local_transport = virtual
virtual_alias_maps = regexp:/etc/postfix/virtual
in /etc/postfix/virtual have an entry similar to this
Hopefully that’s the right way to do the second one.
