Thanks for the reply Clayton. Out of sheer stubbornness and frustration, I 
kept poking away at it, and I finally figured out the magical incantations 
to make Blackhole work with Vpopmail. It's actually pretty darned simple, 
but took an awful lot of poking and digging to figure it out! I've posted a 
'cookbook' (after a fashion) to the discussion forum that's reachable from 
the Blackhole pages (again, the site is ).

I do recommend Blackhole - while the config file structure is kind of a 
mess, there are a ton of options making it very fine-grained, and of 
course, it's written in C, making it pretty efficient on resources.
