I would use a regular expression. Something like this should work:



^ means this is a regex and start matching at the beginingof the 
address string

[^@]* means match any character that is not an @ to match any mail alias

@ means match the @ character

domainname\.com means match the mail domain. Note the \. so that the 
period is not treated as the match character meta character but as a 
literal period character

$ means match the end of the address string
