There are 2 ways to do this. One is to create a subdomain for the vendor accounts, i.e. abc.xyz.com. Public DNS servers concentrate on domain names and are not able to route e-mail properly based on individual address. Alternatively, you can set up a smart host for yourself that will route the e-mails based on the address/group. Set the smarthost as the primary mail server, and then configure appropriate routing rules within it.
