ah, so *not* the RHS of the email address as I thought.  I'm glad
I asked.  So where does MS get the idea of the host from?  Is it
the same as "Read IP Address From Received Header"?

so is the bounce.rules example file incorrect?  What would the
pattern above actually match?  Judging from the examples in README,
I would guess it will never match anything.
