If their system rejects unknown recipients during SMTP, you
can use the reject_unverified_recipient feature to let postfix
manage the valid recipient list for you.
Do this inside a check_recipient_access map to limit the
address probes to only this domain.

header_checks examines one header at a time, so you can't
compare From: <> To:.
You can use a policy server such as postfwd to compare
envelope sender vs. recipient, or a content_filter such as
spamassassin to compare the headers.
