It should already be there at least in 2.7.4 which is stable unless
you've really tweaked your main.cf. I'd run a postconf | grep
enable_orig and see if it's not set to yes.
enable_original_recipient (default: yes)
Enable support for the X-Original-To message header. This header is
needed for multi-recipient mailboxes.
When this parameter is set to yes, the cleanup(8) daemon performs
duplicate elimination on distinct pairs of (original recipient,
rewritten recipient), and generates non-empty original recipient queue
When this parameter is set to no, the cleanup(8) daemon performs
duplicate elimination on the rewritten recipient address only, and
generates empty original recipient queue file records.
This feature is available in Postfix 2.1 and later. With Postfix
version 2.0, support for the X-Original-To message header is always
turned on. Postfix versions before 2.0 have no support for the
X-Original-To message header.
