And... how can we do that, on a standard SuSE
pine/kmail/balsa/whatever, and postfix?
Postfix and sendmail have '+' alias expansion as well. Post as
'robin1.listas+sle(a)tiscali.es' and filter anything delivered to
that address to a junk maildir. Just don't subscribe as
'robin1.listas+sle(a)tiscali.es' of course.
That's very interesting: I'll have to read more about it.
But it doesn't work, apparently: I just subscribed to
"test-list(a)suse.com".com", with my normal name (robin1.listas), and that works
(I see my mail on the list). But if I send as
'robin1.listas+fake(a)tiscali.es' from pine, I don't see my mail on the
list, nor do I get a bounce - unless it takes some time, of course:

My guess is that postfix is using robin1.listas+fake both for the envelope
and the normal "From".
