Ok, so when jabber sends the e-mail the return address is actually to a
special virtual host and any mail sent to a user on jsmtp.flinstone.com is
actually send to that user at flinstone.com through jabber transport. That
makes sense. That could also be a way to create a e-mail to jabber
gateway, anything sent to user at jsmtp.jabberserver.com is actually sent
through the jabber transport. Sounds good.
