qmail is teh suck

It doesn't support RFC3464, so I'd have to do my own parsing of the qmail response to figure out which email address bounced.

Instead, qmail has this VERP thing which is supposed to solve some other problem. I don't see any VERP-like addresses in my bounce mails. I don't see any reliable way of distinguishing bounces from qmail from bounces from random crap either.

So... You qmail users can keep bouncing messages I send to bad addresses on your servers. I sure don't mind.

I don't think it'll be a problem though, I only have 3 of them out of 156 bounces.
