You want to use forwards instead of aliases to get around that.
Ie you want &[EMAIL PROTECTED] in the .qmail-test not /home/vpopmail/domains/domain.com/someguy/Maildir/
Doing it that way, it gets re-submitted and scanned by the .qmail-default

My understanding is that when delivering mail, vpopmail looks for these files in the following order:
~vpopmail/domains/domain.com/.qmail-user ~vpopmail/domains/domain.com/user/.qmail ~vpopmail/domains/domain.com/.qmail/default
It will process according to the first one it comes across, then stop further checking.
So what is happening in your situation, is the .qmail-test file is prcessed by delivering the mail to "user", and then no further processing is done (i.e., it does not then process the mail through the recipient's .qmail* files).
As such, Aliases and Forwards will not be processed by spamd.
I am not sure why this was done this way, but that the way it is. If I was a coder, I would prolly see if I could change that behaviour myself :-)
