Package: reportbug
Version: 4.12.6
Severity: wishlist

According to <http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting>, mails matching
procmail's FROM_DAEMON (which includes the popular mail at mydomain)
won't be received by the bug tracking system. If the mail address
entered by the user matches this regular expression, the mail address
should be rejected by reportbug.
