That doesn't always work, though it really should.  I have seen some
mail servers that refuse mail without a valid TO address.  Probably an
ISP doing some ill-considered anti-spam technique.

[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
