put into locals, or alias it to your virtualdomain.

OK. I put "" into locals. Should all the local domains be there? I note that the vpopmail instructions say that vadddomain will modify locals, but on our system locals remained empty. New result of qmail-showctl is below.

Anyway, now I am getting different error messages:

@40000000413decc015d0bd5c end msg 3794106 something must still be amiss. Permissions, perhaps? I did try adding to virtualdomains before posting the question to this forum, and it seemed to have no effect. As you can see from the first recitation of qmail-showctl, and this current one, the entry for is still there.

Could you perchance explain the flow of process control in the generation of a doublebounce message?
