I've proposed the following solution, a few times over the years, and I still think it's a good one. It would fit your needs (and most people's needs) well.

Someone needs to make a qmail-smtpd patch that calls an external program to verify an account. That way, there's a single qmail-smtpd patch and you can come up with whatever program (chkuser, validrcptto, etc.) you want to verify an account.

You'd pass in the sender's address and the attempted recipient address. The program can have different exit codes for different conditions, and can even output a custom reject message. This would allow for handling lots of conditions:

* Temporary failure, user is over quota
* Permanent failure, user is over quote
* Permanent failure, account does not exist
* Permanent failure, "account closed, please use [EMAIL PROTECTED] instead"
* Accepted
* Accepted (by catchall)
* Rejected, "this account does not accept mail from [EMAIL PROTECTED]"

Hopefully someone with some time on their hands will take this on.
