Messages are placed in the queue by qmail-queue. Once a message has been
dropped off, it's considered "queued".
Next, qmail-send "preprocesses" the messages. Preprocessing consists of
deciding which recipients are local and which are remote, and sometimes
rewriting recipient addresses.
See the INTERNALS file for more details.
