it is actually very simple, /mydomain/user/Maildir/ is a delivery statement, you are
telling it to deliver to that mailbox, that's what is says. if you don't want the mail
to be delivered to that box, don't put a delivery statement in the .qmail.
if you put "| /path/to/maildrop ..." you'd be telling it to run maildrop
if you put "&[EMAIL PROTECTED]" you'd be telling it to redeliver the message as though
it was for user, at which point it would go through the process of reading .qmail
files for user
read http://www.qmail.org/man/man5/dot-qmail.html, it explains it all.
