You can do this with sendmail by user in /etc/mail/virtualusertable. You should see the file /etc/mail/virtualusertable.sample for some explanations of this file. The virtualuser database is read first by sendmail, before aliases. Also the virtualusertable is read serially from top to bottom, so you can specific user maps before a general map for the rest of a domain.
