This depends on your SMTP server, but by the way you have asked this
question, I don't think you will manage to do it. You are so green for that

Anyway, find out what the SMTP server installed is, how it handles virtual
domains and how they are configured (user maps).

If you are familiar with Apache, PHP, MySQL, I'd suggest that you consider
Vexim ( as an easier to manage system for
handling virtual domains.

If you need assistance in migrating, we can help (I can help).
