First: Make the above 'QMAILQUEUE="..."', without the underscore.

to your 'tcp.smtp' file that is merged with 'open-smtp'
(the 127. should already be there, so simply modify it).

Ain't that hard, isn't it?

What what are most of your connections?
"foreigners from out there" and "open-smtp" users? And don't you want
exactly their mails to be run through qmail-scanner?
So create a few rules for "the exceptions" (connections from 127. and
LAN) and "hit" the rest by a 'export QMAILQUEUE' DEFAULT.

The "I patch vpopmail as little as necessary to achieve something I can
do without patching". Simply because it is easily preserved across
vpopmail updates, while the other one requires repatching every time a
new vpopmail is released (and requires the original author to adjust
the patch maybe every time a new version is released).
