With a new enough release of vpopmail, vadddomain takes a -e switch to specify the catch-all address for the domain. Because this gets the mail for any username which does not exist at that domain, it will automatically get abuse and hostmaster mail. This may or may not be good enough for your purposes. Unfortunately, there appears to be no command-line tool for modifying existing domains in this way. If you want to modify existing domains or do not wish to use the catch-all mechanism then you will have to do this manually. However, once having done this on one domain you can then automate it by creating a script of some sort that goes through each domain, creates the destination maildir with vadduser, copies the .qmail-abuse and .qmail-hostmaster files and sets their ownership/permissions. For new domains you can create a script that runs vadddomain then creates the target mailbox and copies the .qmail files. -- Paul Allen Softflare Support
