I believe the * here is redundant.   The second field is a regular expression
for matching against the sender's address, so unless you put a ^ at the
beginning to anchor the @ as the first character, will match
exactly the same things as *

Admittedly the second version might be a little easier to read and see what
it does, but there is no functional difference for MailScanner.



What is this talk of software 'release' ?
Our software evolves and matures until it becomes capable of escape,
leaving a bloody trail of designers and quality assurance people in its wake.
