The vpopmail package is software that can be used to manage virtual domains on a qmail or postfix mail server. A recent issue that I ran into was SpamAssassin not scoring correctly for users who were using domain aliases. In my particular setup I needed to make sure that when a user creates a spamassassin record (whitelist, blacklist, etc) that the record is created both for their primary e-mail address and for their address at all oif their domain aliases. Without the additional rules, e-mail sent to their domain aliaas addresses was being scored by the SpamAssassin default rule set instead of using the users personal preferences.
