I have tried this on a basic qmail installation, and it works fine.  
Basically, it holds the SMTP open whilst it checks if the user or .qmail 
control files exists.  If not, it gives a:
550 sorry, no mailbox here by that name. (#5.1.1)
and closes the SMTP connection.

Looking at the vpopmail directories, I had a .qmail-default with the bounce no 
mailbox so I renamed this and created Two control files   .qmail-marrandy and 
.qmail-martin with delivery instructions for the Two users.  I get deliveries 
to these accounts but qmail/vpopmail still takes delivery of bogus usernames 
and then bounces them later.

I am obviously missing something, but despite checking around, can't see why 
it isn't working.

Any clues please.
