Umm, right. But, much better, I can use a pcre map (and the ability to
do stuff like this is why I finally abandoned sendmail for Postfix (and
have never looked back) - of course, the security advantages didn't hurt):
In /etc/postfix/main.cf, I have:
virtual_alias_maps = pcre:/etc/postfix/virtual_wild_aliases
(well, and a bunch of others, too), where that file contains lines such as:
if !/^chrispager at cybermato\.com$/
/^chris..*@cybermato\.com$/ chris at cybermato.com
But the point of my message is not how to do that (I know how and I've
been doing it) - I want to find a place that will let me do it (or the
equivalent) in a shared hosting setup.
