i have .qmail-default in /home/vpopmail/~vpopmail/domains/user/example.com 
directory. and this file contains:

| /home/vpopmail/bin/vdelivermail '' bounce-no-mailbox




To use maildirsize files you have to configure vpopmail without

--enable-domainquotas option.

Then each user with defined quota will have file called maildirsize in his 

E.g. /home/vpopmail/domains/example.com/username/Maildir/maildirsize

This file contains information about disk space usage and is updated every time 

user deletes messages via pop3/imap or new message arrives.

Could you post all contents of this message (if it's not too big) here?


Honestly, I've never uninstalled vpopmail, but I think that if you remove 
domain name from

/var/qmail/control/virtualdomains  then mail for this domain will not be 
processed by vpopmail.

But there are no other options for virtual domains with qmail. Vmailmgr is way 
obsolete imho.

Also you could try 'make uninstall' :)
