I'm sorry I can't offer any help, but I can echo that I am have similiar confusion. Since installing vpopmail I can't seem to get any of my aliases working - whether they be in /var/qmail/alias for local users like root or under ~/vpopmail/domains/domain.xxx/ for virtual users.
I've looked at my maillog and it almost seems as if my .qmail files are being ignored -- I get a delivery successful but I am not getting the email. Thoughts?
