your question is not related to vpopmail, it's a qmail question and
should be asked on the qmail mailing list.

that's the envelope sender of a double bounce.

set qmail up to send bounces to a different address that is on the same

mail loops and the like.

man qmail-control
look for 'doublebounceto' and 'doublebouncehost'
