What did you add to acceptable_aliases? And for which list(s)?

A post addressed to comp_info+cats+noc at example.com will presumably be 
delivered to the comp_info list. In order for it not to be held by that 
list, you need either

comp_info+cats+noc at example.com

or a regexp like


in the acceptable_aliases of the comp_info list. Then if other lists are 
members of the comp_info list, you need the same thing in 
acceptabale_aliases of those other lists to prevent the post from being 
held there.
