Ok then, finally I got it ... FINALLY :)

*BIG* thanks to Peter Palmreuther for this great tip with strace. I 
can see in the trace that my mailserver (say: the sender, not the new 
one with this issue) replaced the virtual domain 
"mailtest.reinprecht.at" with "mx2.ebox.at" -- I think because of a 
wrong CNAME/MX record in DNS, I will investigate further...

But when I telnet on port 25 to this new qmail server and send a mail 
manually, then everything works fine.

So, thanks again to Peter and all the others who helped me out with 
this! Greetings, Matthias
