Virtual hosting is when a single mail host accepts mail for multiple domains. Unlike HTTP
with its 'host' header feature IMAP/POP3 have no native way of specifying which domain a user
belongs too. As such virtual hosting is done using various hacks on other mail servers. For
example, often the username needs to be specified as 'joe@bloggs.com' rather than plain 'joe'
in an IMAP/POP3 virtual hosting scheme. James doesn't support these virtual hacks right now..
Here is a link to a user who has simulated virtual hosting with James and how he did it..
