 +[10] CAN I ASSIGN ALIASES TO FORWARD TO MY MAIN ADDRESS?
  
 +     In a way, yes.  Basically the delimiter to use is '​+'​. ​ You can then
 +     use procmail (ARPA) to parse the To: header and route the email to 
 +     a file, software or another address. ​ By default, all email addressed
 +     this way will end up in your $MAIL file.
 +
 +     ​Example: ​ Userid is '​joe',​ email address is '​joe@sdf.lonestar.org'​
 +               ​Aliases could be '​joe+private@sdf.lonestar.org'​ or
 +                                '​joe+usenet@sdf.lonestar.org' ​ or
 +                                '​joe+mlist@sdf.lonestar.org'​
 +
 +     While the '​+'​ is documented in the SMTP standard, some html based
 +     ​mailing lists may barf on it and render it useless.
 +
 +     All MetaARPA members who use '​setvmail'​ to toggle on/off the various
 +     '​domains'​ available at SDF may also use this aliasing technique.
