I think I said it before, but if the sender uses a special address
for the From: line, then it's trivial to get all the braindead
bounces[1] to go to a special mailbox and it shouldn't be quite as
much work to clean it up as it is now.

The easiest (for Bill for example) would be to use and then do something like
`echo /home/wrowe/mail/announce-bounce > .qmail-apannounce`.

    to the sender addressand ezmlm will take care of it.
