I thought that mail3 was now going to be just a smtp gateway that
did spam assassin/virus checking etc and then sent the mail onto
the internal system? Mail3 will need a record of the domain in the
rcpthosts file so that it knows to accept mail for the domain and 
then a record in the smtproutes file so it knows what to do with it
once its been processed. The mail.domain.com machine will need the
domain in both rcpthosts (or morercpthosts) and also in virtdomains,
but that is handled by vpopmail for you when you add the domain.

 Unless you are still running virtual domains on mail3, there is no
need to use vpopmail on that system any longer as qmail is doing all
the procesing.
