Sendmail has a similar feature: dfs+$anything at roaringpenguin.com gets
to me. However, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what

I have really aggressive anti-SPAM software. I use the ORBZ and ORDB
open-relay blacklists, and SpamAssassin. This is highly effective;
I get maybe one or two spams a week.
