Just as a followup to this. In NTmail 5 (which was fresh out of beta this
month) this does fix things and turns VRFY off, however in NTmail 4.3c it is
broken and does nothing. Johns from gordano confirmed this to me a short
while ago.

Many thanks for raising the issue of the VRFY command with NTMail.

I can confirm:

a.  That the option in the GUI does not switch the VRFY command
on and off.
    And that this has been raised as an Observation Report to be fixed in
    the next release of NTMail.

b.  To switch of the VRFY command, select "Support > System Variables" and
    choose the "AllowVRFY" variable from the drop-down.  Set this to the
    value 0 and press "Change Value".  You will now see the response:
        558 VRFY not allowed.

We welcome comments on any security issues with NTMail.  The usual
procedure is to direct issues to support () gordano com
