I'll have to pass that to Mark, it's his script.

Regular expression.  "*" is not a wildcard in a regular expression, it
is a repetition operator.  The wildcard for "any character" is a
period.  To match any string (including the empty string), use ".*".
To get a literal period, you quote it with "\".  To ban all addresses
in a particular domain, use ".*@domain\.com$".  If there are multiple
periods, you should quote them all with backslashes.
