Thanks for the information. Is it true though that if I have say
/home/vpopmail/domains/ that I will have to make a .qmail-default
in the directory call the users .qmail's, or can I just simply put
a .qmail in /home/vpopmail/domains/ with:

| /usr/local/bin/maildrop ./Maildir/mailfilter

and have that work? My impression was that at the point we have entered the
individual users directory, we are now in vdeliver and not qmail-local.

I have seen scripts on the internet that show how to have a .qmail-default call
maildir for each user, but it would be much more elegant if I can just have a .qmail
in each users directory inside the virtual domain.

It CAN use maildrop (mailfilter), but doesn't out of the box.

In the users home directory (or the directory where the Maildir is
located), create a file called ".qmail" (that's DOT qmail)

And put this inside of it:

| /usr/local/bin/maildrop ./Maildir/mailfilter

This will cause all mail for that user to be piped through the mailfilter.

Keep in mind that any paths to maildirs, etc, in each mailfilter file
will have to be modified.

When you use vpopmail, does it still use an LDA like mailfilter to
deliver the mail,
or is that now handled by vpopmail up until the very end? I ask
because I am migrating
a bunch of users to vpopmail who now have .mailfilter files to sort
mail etc, and want to know
if vpopmail just does the final delivery lookup and hands off to an LDA
or actually does the delivery
itself? And if it does the delivery itself does it have any scripting
mechinism like mailfilter does?
