I tried:
<ralph> = spamtrap
<*ralph> = spamtrap
<ralph*> = spamtrap
ralph = spamtrap
*ralph = spamtrap
ralph* = spamtrap and even
ralph@* = spamtrap though I figured it couldn't work.

Then I turned to the list for assistance.

"Generic" in the sense that no domain is specified, as in <ralph> = spamtrap?

Where in your router do you place these?
