Ok -- sounds good.  I'd like to do both in one line though -- but I'm not
great with regular expressions yet.  (Maybe the above already does both in one
line?  Hmmm...  I'm not sure about the "." though -- makes me think it
wouldn't catch both...)  Can someone give me a one line regexp that will cover
with and without the "+<stuff>" addition?  So, basically, I want these two

To:     johndoe@*       deliver
To:     johndoe+*@*     deliver one regular expression.  Of course, I don't want just johndoe*@* to
match, since I might have a user that is named johndoejr at that I
wouldn't want to match.  Maybe something like this?

To:     /^johndoe(\+[_a-zA-Z0-9-]+)?\@/ deliver

...but, again, I'm fairly new to regexp, so forgive whatever I have done there
if it is incorrect.  :-)
