Courier's .courier may seem to be exactly like Qmail's .qmail, but
there are some minor differences. Qmail, as of 1.03, does not implement
dynamic delivery instructions. Courier also uses a slightly different
set of return codes which are classified as hard errors. Courier's
implementation of forwarding differs from Qmail's. According to Qmail's
documentation, if any external command terminates in a permanent or
temporary failure, the message is not forwarded to any forwarding
address in the .qmail file, even to addresses that precede the failed
delivery instruction. The message is forwarded only after it is suc-
cessfully delivered. Courier forwards messages to addresses immedi-
ately. Also, in some cases Qmail resets the return address on the mes-
sage to the address of the account being forwarded.
To make things more confusing, there is a configuration setting to have
Courier read $HOME/.qmail files, instead of $HOME/.courier.

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory.
