You need to set up a catchall on the remote site to forward to admin@xxx.com, then you'd need a parser to grab the headers from the email at admin, and compose a new message for local delivery to the user.

Is there a reason this is needed? It seems like a bit of a hack, prone to failure.

So, just parse the incoming emails and rebuild mail messages for the new local users. It all depends on the exact formats of the headers coming in to your server.
