Another useful SMTP command to consider is EXPN, which will tell you what
an alias expands to.  A while back someone submitted `' to
comp.sources.reviewed (which is archived many places including UUNET and
many source CDROMs) which will take an email address and produce a list of
all the destination mailboxes (addresses which don't explode or forward).
Most of this code could be ported to MOO pretty easily.
