If we go down that road, we'll probably need at least two seperate
inputs, one for the alias-normalised, and one for the publicly
advertised email address.
Hence, when the autoreply is generated, it comes from
<firstname.lastname at somerealdomain.com> rather than
<ar-flastname at localhost> or whatever it's become normalised to.
That said, it's at least one step further down the road to a working
At the moment I'm hacking at roundcube's sieverules plugin to try and
draw up the functionality without requiring any changes in the MTA/LDA,
but a more generic solution would be very welcome since it'd provide
protection from the next inevitable roundcube security hole.
.. alternatively a plaintext dict of "fromaddress alias1 aliasN" would
be clumsy but easily scriptable to update from any LDAP/MySQL/sqlite
