Given a class of structured matrices $\Sb$, we identify pairs of vectors $x,b$ for which there exists a matrix $A\in\Sb$ such that $Ax=b$, and also characterize the set of all matrices $A\in\Sb$ mapping $x$ to $b$. The structured classes we consider are the Lie and Jordan algebras associated with orthosymmetric scalar products. These include (skew-)symmetric, (skew-)Hamiltonian, pseudo (skew-)Hermitian, persymmetric and perskew-symmetric matrices. Structured mappings with extremal properties are also investigated. In particular, structured mappings of minimal rank are identified and shown to be unique when rank-1 is achieved. The structured mapping of minimal Frobenius norm is always unique and explicit formulas for it and its norm are obtained. Finally the set of all structured mappings of minimal 2-norm is characterized. Our results generalize and unify existing work, answer a number of open questions, and provide useful tools for structured backward error investigations.
