SMTP VRFY Doesn't Expand

Previous versions of sendmail treated VRFY and EXPN the same. In this version, VRFY doesn't expand aliases or follow .forward files. EXPN still does.

As an optimization, if you run with your default delivery mode being queue-only or deliver-in-background, the RCPT command will also not chase aliases and .forward files. It will chase them when it processes the queue.
