I expect it to look at the virtualdomains file to determine what user the 
domain should be handled by (or that it's even there!) and then look up the 
user using standard qmail lookup procedures (check qmail-users first, then 
system users)

I recently had a problem with a customer who was moving one of his domains to 
an exchange server but leaving the qmail server in place for filtering.  I 
took the domain out of virtualdomains and sent qmail-send a HUP signal, 
however, the chkuser patch was still looking for 'valid' users inside the 
vpopmail databases.  This is wrong behavior on vpopmail's part.
