Hello Rudi,

1.) Please don't top-post.
2.) Please don't CC my on replies, I'm reading the mailing list.
3.) Please consider, as already suggested by Kiril, to avoid posting
HTML mails. If possible stick with plain text mails.

Well, what makes you assume it doesn't work for you? Have you tried
it? What's the error message? If you haven't tried: why do you think
it won't work? N.b.: nearly _everybody_ using vpopmail has 'Maildir'
structures for storing messages. vdelivermail is designed to work with

Option 1.) Consult the fetchmail documentation for fetchmail splitting
the messages and injecting them for "pete", "rudi" or "john".

Option 2.) Write a [shell|awk|sed|<whatever>] script or program that
can do this and inject messages into this script/program from
fetchmail via 'mda' parameter. Or use something like 'procmail' or
'maildrop'. vdelivermail is not designed to extrapolate the necessary
information from a multidrop mailbox stream.

P.S.: Second time: For future mails to this list you really should disable
1.) It's superfluous. It contains the same address as "From" and
therefore is absolutely useless.
2.) It makes it impossible to easily reply to the list for those MUAs
capable of List-Reply by evaluating 'List-Post' header.
'Reply-To' takes, for obvious reasons, precedence over
Thank you.
