But it's very interesting to know this issue...

Was it previously a bug in vpopmail, or in the smtp-auth to qmail?

It is a vpopmail bug that dumps "user invalid username:" in the output. Should we remove the two printf calls in parse_email() in vpopmail? If anything, that function should return different error codes for invalid user and invalid domain, and the code that calls parse_email can decide whether to display an error message.
