[local delivery, catch-all, forwards]
Is this a known issue, is there a solution?

The problem is that you are setting the catchall for to a postmaster address.

As you are probably aware, upon creating a domain with vadddomain,
there is one e-mail account which is always created and cannot be
deleted with qmailadmin: postmaster.

What you need to be aware of, is that the catch-all only works for
e-mail sent to addresses within a domain that are _NOT_ already
defined as forwards or regular accounts. Thus, your setup will always
fail as the postmaster account is always there.

Yes, but what about: :/var/vpopmail/domains/ cat .qmail-default | /var/vpopmail/bin/vdelivermail '' [EMAIL PROTECTED]

:/var/vpopmail/domains/ cat .qmail-postmaster


Email sent directly to [EMAIL PROTECTED] is nicely forwarded to [EMAIL PROTECTED], but email sent to [EMAIL PROTECTED] (which is caught by the catch-all [EMAIL PROTECTED]) is delivered locally to this Maildir.

In our system, postmaster@ is a normal emailaddress which can be used by the customer.

You could remedy this by setting the catch-all address of
to an non-existant address in, such as

True, I already knew about this solution but "it doesn't fit in our system", because it involves manually adding and editing dot-qmail files (trust me, you don't want to do this for +20.000 virtual domains :-)

Someone on the qmail mailinglist answerd:
        Update vpopmail to ver. 5.2.2 and it will magically work, I
        ran into this last weekend.

I'll test with vpopmail ver 5.2.2. when this server goes live on March 13, unfortunaly I can't test it sooner.

Anyway, thanks for your answer.
