 This might be like what exim does.  mail-abuse.org thinks the message to
nobody%mail-abuse.org@u91n224.hfx.eastlink.ca was accepted, but exim doesn't
actually deliver it.  It doesn't seem to treat % addresses specially.
(This is a good thing, as far as I'm concerned.  less code = fewer chances
for holes.)

#define X(x,y) x##y
