Discussion is most welcome.  That's a major reason why I posted it.

Good question. Anyone know off the top of their head how this works. I guess I should, as I use chkuser too. I'm thinking either delete or bounce should act the same and reject non-existent users. I know I can't forward mail to a catchall account and still reject non-existent users. This topic should probably be added to the file since it does affect how deliveries work on the server.

Comments anyone?
