Some mail servers support what's called 'user+box' or 'plussed' addressing, where you can use an address of the form realname+magic. Email addressed to will be delivered to the realname mailbox. It can then be filtered on for special processing, as the "+magic" part is preserved (think procmail ).

To find out if your mailserver supports this feature, simply test it out by sending email from somewhere else to "" and check if it arrives in the yourname mailbox.
