We use max_num_recipients as a vague spam detector and came to the
conclusion that when counting, extra addresses are counted if an address
contains [square brackets]. Example:
test at lists.example.net, jefke [jefke2 at foo.example.net],
jefke3 at example.net, jefke4 at example.net
in the To: or Cc: field will be counted as 6 adresses. I reckon this is
interpreted as an array and flattened or something.
(Yes, 's are illegal in mail adresses but we receive messages like
Proposed solution: 's/\]/\\]/g' 's/\[/\\[/g'
** Affects: mailman
parts of recipients adresses between square brackets in are interpreted as seperate addresses
