The maildir is on the BRANCH server. maildirsmtp picks the mail from
there and delivers to central server. The vpopmail is running on
central server. Where if I use 5.4.27 the mail bounces back with
looping error. If I use vpopmail 5.4.9 it does not bounce.
Here is a header from a mail in the maildir before it is picked up by

Delivered-To: alias-ppp-rc...@branch2.domain1.com
Delivered-To: rc...@branch2.domain1.com
From: "sender" <sen...@branch2.domain1.com>
To: <x...@xyz.com>,

How do I know if I am reaching the header limit?
I dont have a  control/MAXHOPS Never had.
If that is the problem how does reverting back to vpopmail 5.4.9
resolves the issue?
