Because I'm not getting it to work that easily.

I wish it would. I've tried setting queue_extra to
"Tlog\0" and "Tdomain.com-log\0" and adjusting queue_extralen
appropriately. The latter simply causes qmail to deliver to
[EMAIL PROTECTED] in the logfiles. The
former would probably work for copying to a normal user's mailbox, but
that doesn't allow the filtering method described at

I've tried various other methods, including running vdelivermail from a
.qmail file in /var/qmail/alias. The closest I've come is using a
.qmail-log file in /home/vpopmail/domains/domain.com/ to copy to another
user and getting 2 copies, instead of just one. Worst case, everyone
sending e-mail to this domain starts getting messages about their e-mail

For more of what I've tried, see my message from Tuesday titled
"Vpopmail and message logging?".

Any other suggestions?
