postfix, because this is a service of a MTA.
Postfix needs SASL to authentificate users, then an user DB to get the
user information (aka mail address) from.

I don't understand this.
You have to configure postfix, to replace header information. IMHO Postfix
should not care about whether this is "reply" information or anything

It makes no difference, per RFC nobody has the right to send mails
"without the ability to reply on" except for DSNs. ;-)
I cannot help you with your postfix configuration, because I don't use it.
