What I would do is avoid the problem in the first place by not having a
.qmail-default. I don't know how important being sure you have no false
positive spam rejections to incorrect/misspelled addresses is to you,
but is it worth accepting hundreds of thousands of spams and then
looking through them to find the very few that may be legitimate? I
think you would be better off creating variations in the users' .qmail
file, such as paul.hoadley@, phoadley@, paul.h at . That could been done
via a script that gets called when you create a user, so the only extra
work would be to write script the first time and plugging it in. (Of
course, you would have to run it against your existing users, too.)
As I said, I don't know what your requirements are, just my 2% of the
applicable currency's base unit.
