This is ultimately unreliable. You cannot rely on the presence of
RFC-822 comments in headers. Secondly, there could be old-style
To: school at eircom.net (Paul)
Thirdly, there are CC's. And four, this is where it all fails: Bcc's.
Everything that involves not giving everyone their owm, unique
address is a maintenance nightmare. Stay away from it. All you need
is your gateway box as primary MX, your ISP's mailhost as secondary,
and that is that.
