tmail is working perfectly for me now, so I have no more operational
questions. What follows is just because I'm always keen to learn. :)

You mean what's in doc/drivers.txt? So in my case, with
CREATEPROTO=mbxproto, ~/INBOX is created when tmail falls through to
the dummy driver?
By the way, why do you have both "P" and "r" in the example of the
local mailer definition? As far as I can tell it's not breaking an RFC
to finish one trace block and start another, but my understanding is that
a return-path indicates the message has left the SMTP environment, and
having it in there twice suggests it re-entered and left again.
