I made some tweaks and discovered it won't work with a list with a dash in 
the name, due to the regex used to extract the action suffix. Can someone 
more nimble with regex let me know how to adjust it?


I also changed the "printf STDERR" to syslog to my maillog.

Here's the before/after regex:

<       if ($addr =~ /(.*)-(.*)\+.*$/) {
>       if ($addr =~ /(.*)-([^-]+)\+.*$/) {
