The message has an implicit destination. This means that the list is not
explicitly addressed in a To: or Cc: header of the message.

Since you don't have control over this message, you have to do it
another way.

This is problematic. To pass this email you'd need to do one of two
things. You can go to Privacy options -> Recipient filters and put
all-april in acceptable_aliases, but that probably won't work because
next month's will be all-may. These are regexps so you could try


where example.com is the real domain.

The other choice is to just set require_explicit_destination to No, but
that may allow some spam that would otherwise get held by this check.
