I am unable to comprehend this kind of mentality. If I post on a
public forum asking for help, it is because I don't know what I did
wrong, and I want someone to tell me what it was. I did that for you,
and you are angry about it.

Likewise, this is beyond me. I had a busy day, but took a few minutes
to reply and show you serious errors in your regular expressions. How
is that "not answering?" Why should unpaid volunteers on a mailing
list be concerned about your time? It should be the inverse: people
asking questions should be thankful for what they get. If you want
more, hire someone. (No, not me.) http://sweet.nodns4.us/
I gave you specific regular expression terms to look up in regexp
documentation. This being the Postfix list, if there is a Postfix
issue, usually I will take the time to post the relevant links to
Postfix documentation. Not knowing what regexp metacharacters mean
and do, or how to anchor an expression: these are not Postfix
I guess we are in different worlds. Enough said. Apologies to the
list for the noise, but I suspect I am not alone in my feelings.
EOT, followups will be ignored.
