OK. I think it's time you re-read your qmail documentation and visit a
qmail specific resource, like


forwarding with dot-qmail is a pure qmail topic, and nb: it works.

Delivered-To is inserted by qmail if it found a delivery instruction to
an incoming mail. If it ain't you're doing something strange.
As you did not even provide _complete_ examples of your .qmail and two
mails, one stored locally and forwarded by the provided .qmail file
we're not able to guess what could be wrong. Nevertheless it's still a
qmail issue, not vpopmail.

Next thing is: Return-Path is written to the stored message by the last
SMTP that receives the message and stores it.
If this storage operation is done by 'qmail-local' this line _is_
inserted. If you forward these messages to an external host it's up to
_THIS_ MTA to provide that line; qmail running on your server ain't
responsible. Return-Path ain't a header line as "From" that is
transported with the mail, it is only a manifestation of "Envelope From"
in SMTP-level written to the mail when final destination is reached.
Please read RFC-822 (esp. sec. 4.3.1) for further information.

To make another concrete statement: I'm using the '&[EMAIL PROTECTED]'
forwarding in dozens, if not hundred of dot-qmail files by myself. And
"Delivered-To" and "Return-Path" are present every time as they should.

So please provide your concrete setup to the experts on a qmail-list,
they'll for sure now where to look for a possible point of failure.
