Yes, I think I did missunerstand it. The above scenario isn't true of cause, 
as the bounce message will say

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at Mailserver.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses. 
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out. 

[EMAIL PROTECTED] 
Sorry, no mailbox here by that name. vpopmail (#5.1.1) 

And then it isn't such a bad idea having the host name in the bounce message. 
Sorry, just a popmail newbie that hadn't had his coffe yet.
