What is the typical route an incoming message takes?
Here's the full pipeline of programs that get run between incoming remote SMTP connection and mail delivery on a "typical" toaster:
qmail-local reads the .qmail files and passes control of the message to programs specified there.
deliverquota is called by the mailfilter script to check quotas and deliver the message to the appropriate Maildir if the quota is okay.

How do I route outgoing mail through my ISP's SMTP server?
A: If your ISP's mailserver is mail.someisp.net, add
to the bottom of /var/qmail/control/smtproutes. This will only work if your ISP allows relaying from its entire dynamic IP range. This is usually the case. -- Tor Willy Austeratt
