I never had to use the qvirtual option when running qmail on my home
system.  (I used fetchmail with qmail before the qvirtual option
existed.)  What are you trying to achieve?

The answer to your problem, BTW, is to move the parameter
"qvirtual isp-prefix-" further up in your .fetchmailrc.

qmail's license doesn't fall comply with the DFSG, so it's not part of
Debian.  It also doesn't comply with the OSD, so it's not Open
Source(TM) either.

(It also has annoying consequences if DJB gets hit by a bus.)

DJB frequently appears quite arrogant, even when he's correct.
