Great. That does exactly what I want. I believe that I've already
set up postfix to do the right thing with "username+something"
addresses. Yes. I've just tested and it works like a charm.

Where do I find the evictions dictionary? And how do I query it?
find /usr/local/mailman -name "evict*" -ls

typically in /var/lib/mailman is under /usr/local/mailman)
