The question is whether sendmail passes to the milter the username the
remote MTA said it was sending to, or if it passes the username that
sendmail has determined it's being aliased to.

But...that's what it already does?  I must have missed something.

>(i.e. it's not a username on the system).  I don't think it can know. 

Yeah, see my question above.

We're trying to figure out right now how we can do per user
customizations without having to resort to calling it from maildrop.
