normally you can add custom UPN-Suffixes in your AD and assign them to 
users. That's also the way I'd propose here.

1. Add UPN-Suffix for you mail-domain (Within the AD Domain and Trust 
2. Set UPN including suffix for the users accordingly (User logon name 
and suffix in Users properties from AD users and computers)
than you users can login using username at maildomain
