It works just fine now and I'll start adding plugins.

It turns out that knowing about
    config/spool_dir               (Thanks, John!) and
is essential for getting started. The former is documented in and
but the latter seems to be a well-kept secret.


P.S. qpsmtpd 0.3x displays the following warning twice:

Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at 
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6/Qpsmtpd/ line 676, <STDIN> line 10.

These apparently refer to $authheader and $sslheader, which should be 
initialized to empty strings at the point of definition.
