qmail -- new accounts can't receive mail, but old accounts can

I have set up qmail on openbsd system with SMTP SSL ( port 465 ) and IMAP SSL ( port 993 ). Everything works well with the accounts which create at the begining of setup qmail. Now, i have add some new accounts with the same way with old account. However i got the problem when send to new account:
