Our commercial product (CanIt) works like this:

- We chop off everything after a "+" in the sender address.  This takes
care of the Sendmail "plus" hack.

- We chop off everything matching /-\d[^@]*\@/ in the sender address.


	foo+bar at domain.net  --> foo at domain.net
	psql-bounce-12937 at bar.com --> psql-bounce at bar.com

This takes care of all of the address-tracking cases I've seen so far.
We tell our customers to explicitly whitelist any others, though, in case
someone comes up with a different format for address tracking.
