I know when I set up qmail the first time a long time ago, I used vipmap
to map the ip to the domain.  Could I do that again, with a new ip for
the new domain?

"hondaman" is either an actual account on the machine (in /etc/passwd), 
or your POP/IMAP server is setup to use a particular virtual domain as 
the default for logins that don't specify a domain.

When using vpopmail to do virtual domains, you need to include the 
domain name in the username you use to pick up mail from the server.  
That's the only way the POP/IMAP server can know what domain the user 
belongs to.
