Sure, but I don't think this is a munge - I understood his post to
mean that "nospam_40811@alltel.net" was actually his real email
address, but the presence of the "nospam" bit fools [some] automated
address-harvesting tools into either ignoring it, or perhaps removing
the "nospam" bit which then results in an invalid address.
