Isn't this rather a limitation of the software used or a
misconfiguration? I'm not very experienced with the problem but reading
the manpage, I think the filter is a bit too simple. Why filter eg every
mail@* mail instead of only *relevant* mails like mail@*.debian.org?

Done. But please be aware that this problem also applies to our users
using the BTS. Every time they use one of the problematic mails, they
get an error message -- I think you cannot expect our users to
subordinate to those limitations, could you?

I'll change the mail address for debian purposes as soon as possible,
but please consider that most users will not, so the problem should be
fixed on the server-side.
