BTW, if I understand the documentation correctly, "regular expression"
may not be the best name for what refile: does. Does refile: support
anything beyond simple wildcard ("*") matching? When a typical Unix
admin hears "regular expression", he/she thinks of grep. With grep, one
would have to write ".*_at_example\.com$", but could then also do things
like ".*_at_example\.(com|net)$". I guess that's not the case here.

Anyway, just a comment. The wildcard does the job.
