qmail Virtual Domains PLEASE HELP!!

i have qmail configured to recieve mail for two differnt domains... lets say they are abc.com and xyz.net.   the user account that ill be dealing with will be George.

as configured mail addressed to george@abc.com and george@xyz.net will be delivered to the same mail box.  What i want to do is separate these two mailboxes.  

In outlook or another mail cliend i want to add an account that accesses the pop3 server using the addres mail.abc.com using the login in george wich would retrieve mail for george@abc.com and another account using the pop3 address mail.xyz.net also using the login in name george and retrieve mail for george@xyz.net.  

thanks in advance

is it possible to have two differnet passwords for this login name depending on what address your accessing the pop3 server on?  is ipossible to have the samepassword for both..i need to know my options if you cant do what i described above

Right. you can't have the same login for different user accounts. Your customers just have to setup one time their mail software whith the login you select for them. It's easy.
You seem to be confused with email address and login account.

First add this two lines in /vat/qmail/control/virtualdomains


Don(t forget to insert the two domain names in /rcpthosts too.

Then create two directories with the same names in /home


Put a .qmail-george based on .qmail-email to link to each pop account. Example "abc-georges" in ".qmail-georges" in abc folder and "xyz-georges" in ".qmail-georges" in xyz one.

Create the both folder in /home for example and link them to /var/spool/mail/login


Does-it sound clear ?

right but the login name for each pop3 account will have to be different if you want two separate mail boxes correct?  i also want to keep the login name the same as the email address.

right thats my understanding but i thought there was some way to do what i wanted using somthing like vpop3d.  Plus if i did it that way wouldnt they also be able to recieve mail on username@mydomain.com as well as email@theirdomain.com
I give up.
