1) Check the .qmail-default file to make sure it has a valid
vdelivermail setup. Check it against a working domain.
2) Check the /var/qmail/users/assign file for the domain against
the other domains. Make sure the /var/qmail/users/cdb file is
newer than the assign file. If not run qmail-newu
My bet would be a wacky .qmail-default file for the domain
since mail delivery is the only thing that uses that file.
