Good question---without context, my claim that I can do nothing else seems wrong. What I should have said is "given I have an interest in collecting all the spams to non-existent addresses, I don't think I can make qmail do anything other than deliver it to the new/ subdir of a Maildir."
Could you create a user to get them; and give that user a procmail (or similar) delivery-time script to file them into subdirs based on some arbitrary characteristic?
IMHO, these messages should be _rejected_ at the SMTP session, though (AFAICS) qmail won't do this (without being patched). (I am sure I once read a "security" justification for this behaviour, though I can't seem to find any justification for it at all now. I am willing to be convinced otherwise, but IMHO, accepting these messages is bogus behaviour.) Anyway, I was about to embark on tracking down a patch to do SMTP-level rejection, when I decided I would just funnel them into a Maildir and use them later to train Bogofilter, or whatever.
Just FYI, Exim, with the ExiScan patches, can reject at SMTP time; and also has a 'fakereject' capability which tells the sender that the message has been rejected; but actually delivers it.
