Except that on my mailer it doesn't catch "gzg-l@CSUA", "GZG-L@csua" or 
"gzg-l@csua". I found this out the hard way, having recieved all four
variants over the past few days - so I now have all these variants as
entries. I could (probably) cut it to two, though - "GZG-L@" and
- will try now. (Hopefully no-one will use "GZG-l" or "gzg-L", or some
other combination of upper and lower cases...)

Your entry also won't catch, which seems to be
an alternative address - at least I've recieved Starfire list posts
directed to  "" rather than
"" several times during the past four years.
The short version (gzg-l@) should work, though.

My (currently) sixth "sort GZG posts" is for those posts that are only
CCed to the list rather than being sent directly - though I really need
two of those rather than just one to catch the variants listed above. I
just haven't had any CCed posts to more than "GZG-L@" yet :-/
