Public bug reported:
This is very minor, but probably deserves a note in the documentation.
In the ban_list (and probably other places) a regular expression
requires the leading end anchor "^". Thus one without that as first
character would be interpreted as an email address. With the "^", the
entry will be read as a regular expression.
How would you handle an email address where the localpart begins with
"^"? Granted, this is a very rare thing, but it is possible. Escape it
with backslash? It could be done as a regular expression also, but that
fact might be worth noting. Thanks.
FYI, I discussed this with Terri in IRC, and she suggested filing a bug.
