The only domain that is handled by vpopmail, for the examples above, is
naxum.com. So let's deal with just that one.
I have added naxum.com to the vpopmail with vadddomain.
vpopmail put "naxum.com:naxum.com" into virtualdomains, and the relevant entry
into users/assign. Email to users added with vadduser
are delivered properly.
It is my understanding that any .qmail files, matching the user name in an
incoming email, in /home/vpopmail/domains/naxum.com will
be used before the delivery instructions in .qmail-default. That is what is NOT

Email sent to [EMAIL PROTECTED] is fine. Email sent to [EMAIL PROTECTED] seems
to vaporize. The file .qmail-frederick contains the
single line "&[EMAIL PROTECTED]" (without the double quotes) which, based on my
understanding, means that email to
[EMAIL PROTECTED] should be forwarded to [EMAIL PROTECTED] That does not happen.
The file .qmail-default contains the single line "|
