Probably because this is not really an Interchange thing but rather a qmail 
thing. You might want to get on a qmail forum or mailing list and pose the 
same question - Interchange is just a big script so a solution that works 
for any script should be adaptable for interchange. I took 37 seconds to 
look at "Life With Qmail" (http://www.lifewithqmail.org/lwq.html), section 
4.3, and did see that environment variables can be used to override 
configuration directives, but perhaps a Qmail guru (which I am NOT) would 
be better suited to show you how you might exploit this...
