qmail-lspawn - schedule local deliveries
qmail-lspawn reads a series of local delivery commands from descriptor 0, invokes qmail-local to perform the deliveries, and prints the
results to descriptor 1. It passes defaultdelivery to qmail-local as the default delivery instruction.
qmail-lspawn invokes qmail-local asynchronously, so the results may not be in the same order as the commands.
For each recipient address, qmail-lspawn finds out which local user controls that address. It first checks the qmail-users mechanism; if
the address is not listed there, it invokes qmail-getpw. qmail-lspawn then runs qmail-local under the user's uid and gid. It does not set
up any supplementary groups.
qmail-lspawn treats an empty mailbox name as a trash address.

qmail-start - turn on mail delivery
qmail-start [ defaultdelivery [ logger arg ... ] ]
qmail-start invokes qmail-send, qmail-lspawn, qmail-rspawn, and qmail-clean, under the proper uids and gids. These four daemons cooperate
to deliver messages from the queue.
qmail-start arranges for qmail-send's activity record to be sent to qmail-start's output. See qmail-log(5) for the format of the activity
record. Other than this, qmail-start does not print anything, even on failure.
If defaultdelivery is supplied, qmail-start passes it to qmail-lspawn.
If logger is supplied, qmail-start invokes logger with the given arguments, and feeds qmail-send's activity record through logger.
Environment variables given to qmail-start will eventually be passed on to qmail-local, so make sure to clean up the environment if you run
# env - PATH="/var/lib/qmail/bin:$PATH"
qmail-start ./Mailbox splogger qmail &
(all on one line)
Resource limits, controlling ttys, et al. are also passed from qmail-start to qmail-local.
Note that qmail-send normally juggles several simultaneous deliveries. To reduce qmail-send's impact on other programs, you can run qmail-
start with a low priority.

we had an emergency situation and had to rebuild a qmail server last night.
Email now that is designated as spam gets stuck in a loop and we get a ndr.
I would like for email not destined for a valid account or classified as spam be deleted rather then forwarded on to our exchange server.
