Did you rebuild vpopmail between when it worked and when it stoped?
Is /home/vpopmail/bin/vdelivermail the correct path?
If the answers are No and Yes respectively, you might need to escape the ''
in the VPOP line. Try making the VPOP line this:
VPOP="| /home/vpopmail/bin/vdelivermail \'\' bounce-no-mailbox"
Also, double check the logic of the conditionals in your mailfilter. I
haven't had a chance to pull it apart, but it doesn't "look right"
