I actually implemented this in my copy of vdelivermail.c.  It was actually
easier than I thought, and there were fewer issues, apparently, although I'm
not intimately familiar enough to know that I haven't missed something.

Here's what I did:

I tentatively reclaimed the unused there-for-compatibility command-line
argument 1.  If that argument equals '-d', intended to mean "Deliver Only"
(but could also mean Disable .qmail processing), then processing proceeds as
if the .qmail file did not exist, which I guess is just what Kyle Wheeler
was suggesting.  That appears to be all there is do it.

This change allows you do basic filtering in your .qmail files without
needing any of:


In my book this is a very good thing.  It not only avoids the need for
dependencies on extra packages, but offers all the advantages that
vdelivermail already provides, including quota checking.  As README.quotas

So with this change, you can now have the following line in your user/.qmail

    | myfilter | vdelivermail -d bounce-no-mailbox

and it will not result in infinite vdelivermail recursion.  And so you can
have a pure-vpopmail solution for your QmailAdmin-enabled Spam Detection

Here are the changes to vdelivermail.c in vpopmail-5.4.10 needed to
implement this:

It was probably eaiser for me to do that than it would have been to download
and make procmail, maildrop, or safecat!

If there's not something wrong with this that I'm missing, I'd love to see
this (or something similar) get integrated into vpopmail.
