[RCU] different mail server for some user accounts

I dare say you could edit the code for your local copy of Roundcube to 
add that feature. I doubt anyone else would make the change for you, 
unless you are offering to pay for the work.

Alternatively you could follow @lbutlr's suggestion of making the 
necessary config changes in the upsteam mailserver, or my suggestion of 
a second parallel install of Roundcube.

It all depends on which part of the overall stack you are most 
comfortable with editing, but in any case it would help a lot if you 
told the overall problem you are trying to solve, as there is likely to 
be a better solution.
