this is a qmail question, not vpopmail.. so it should go on the qmail list... 

you can't.  the qmail server has *NO* idea what domain the client is trying to 
send to when the client issues HELO/EHLO, therefore, it cannot respond 

Also, what happens if one client is sending to two domains on your server?  
What should it respond to HELO/EHLO with?

the helo/ehlo response should be the FQDN of your mail server.  For instance, 
if you connect to mine, you'll see that it responds with 
tranquility.scriptkitchen.com, which is the FQDN of my mail server.  Connect 
to my fileserver and you'll get edge.scriptkitchen.com (just ignore the 
postfix banner! :P)
