Ahh.  I've been duped into thinking Alternate-Mailboxes works at send time
becuase Sendmail sometimes prevents me from receiving multiple copies of msgs
with multiple (unique) addresses which funnel into my inbox.

I suppose some procmail-fu is in order.

Yes, address@hidden seems quite reasonable.  I think that's what I used back 
I read the doc in 2001, 2002ish.

Apologies everyone, for not having reviewed the man page before complaining.
