      With VERP, the envelope recipient rcptname@rcptdomain is embedded
      in the bounce address as

      owner-listname+rcptname=rcptdomain@...

      (assuming recipient delimiters of "+=").

      With this, you lose the rcptname=rcptdomain information,
      which already provides you with the recipient address.

      What could be simpler than replacing "=" by "@" ?
