Since you haven't gotten an answer yet that does what you want, I'll throw this thought out. It's probably more trouble to you than it's worth just for this, but here goes...
My setup uses Maildrop. Under this scenario, I got rid of most of my .qmail files, and thus all mail is handled by .qmail-default, which calls Maildrop. In my Maildrop script, I can silently blackhole a specific sender without any bounce whatsoever. Given that I use one master mailfilter for the entire server (with includes to customize it per-domain and per-user), I can therefore blackhole any sender from the entire server by doing so in the system-wide filter script.
I had a doubt that someone would definitely suggest MailDrop Script.
Yes, I know that it can be achieved using maildrop. But, you know that maildrop mailfilter can be enabled / disabled for some users using qmailadmin interface. That means, for some pop accounts the maildrop mailfilter would not be used. Also, for pure forwards the mailfilter would not get executed.
That means, you have to achieve it doing the setting of maildrop into the .qmail files manually for each account. Tedious to maintain !!
