Hello, What I would do is avoid the problem in the first place by not having a .qmail-default. I don't know how important being sure you have no false positive spam rejections to incorrect/misspelled addresses is to you, but is it worth accepting hundreds of thousands of spams and then looking through them to find the very few that may be legitimate? I think you would be better off creating variations in the users' .qmail file, such as paul.hoadley@, phoadley@, [EMAIL PROTECTED] That could been done via a script that gets called when you create a user, so the only extra work would be to write script the first time and plugging it in. (Of course, you would have to run it against your existing users, too.) As I said, I don't know what your requirements are, just my 2% of the applicable currency's base unit.
