I dont think you can do this
I do remember seeing a patch somewhere that allows it (maybe it was on
qmail.org?), but I think there are some pretty strong arguments as to why it
should not be done
The argument is along the lines of that the qmail-smtpd would have to launch
a simulated delivery attempt for every incoming mail message to determine
whether the account existed or not, and that would waste a lot of resources.

This is not vpopmail related, its a straight qmail question

You can control who receives the doublebounce message using commands like
  # send double-bounces to [EMAIL PROTECTED]
  echo 'doublebounce' > /var/qmail/control/doublebounceto
  echo 'yourdomain.com' > /var/qmail/control/doublebouncehost

That way if you dont want doublebounces to come to your mailbox, you can
send it elsewhere
