i have a client that wants a fairly common spamtrap address on my server <admin> to be a real address on his domain.

i warned him that it's likely he'll start getting some spam as soon as i set it up for him, but he wants it anyway.

what i'd like to do is have his account - admin@foo.bar - to be first in the router, then what's not caught by that <admin> be a spamtrap. unfortunately, admin@foo.bar routs to <admin> and <admin> is a spamtrap, so his working address would be a spamtrap in that sense.

how else can i keep this spamtrap, and yet have his address work at the same time? i'd like to refrain from having to put an <admin@...> entry for every other domain on the server. any suggestions?
