Sorry to top post, but what options did you configure 5.4.9 with and what did you configure 5.4.27 with? How do you determine what messages go to which branch? Via smtproutes? Forwards? Mx records? IP over Avian Carrier (IPoAC) ;)

5.4.9 was configured with ./configure --enable-logging=p
5.4.27 is configured with  ./configure --enable-logging=v 

Branches download messages with fetchmail according to local fetchmailrc configured with users sitting at that branch.

Inter branch messages are delivered to the central server by maildirsmtp and downloaded by other branches fetchmail. It is only these messages that are bouncing with the looping error.

No, because just reverting back to vpopmail 5.4.9 solves the issue without touching qmail in any way. Its the combination of maildirsmtp and vpopmail 5.4.27 thats causing the trouble. Everything
else is working fine.
