[Sorry about that previous post.  I was playing with the
 postproc script.]

Thanks for that suggestion!  My regex is a little more complicated
because I'm trying to catch not only @stanford.edu but hosts of
the form @xyz.stanford.edu, where "xyz" can be some hosts but not
others (apparently there are different anti-spam policies).  But I
can use this!

That said, there is one problem with this script:  apparently MH
aliases are expanded *after* this script is invoked.  I emailed
someone that I have aliased, so that in my draft it is

     To:  foobar

and in my aliases file it expands based on the entry

     foobar:  address@hidden

But the script only sees "foobar" and not the expanded address.

Any suggestions?
