That's interesting.  I don't use virtual domains.  

But I wonder then if the check in the code is wrong and should only check for 
a missing ! on local mail box line, for virtual domains.

But this explains why the check is in the code in the first place - thanks.
Luckily all it does is syslog an error, and up the error count.

I've currently commented the syslog line out.  I didn't want a thousand 
messages suddenly sent to my syslog virtually all at once :-).  
But that is not the proper fix.  I suspect that the proper fix may be to test 
for virtual domains.
