Yeah.  This mail acually was sent to qa.d.o, for which mail is indeed
handled by master.  

The problem seems to be though, that the different hosts have different
policies for incoming mail, so when mail is sent to another host, and
that hosts rejects it, it is bounced to the forged address.  
Would there be some way to sync these policies?  Maybe by having one
single hosts handle all incoming mails?

Well, that's a good reason to upgrade to to exim4, then.
