Hmm...  interesting.  Can I assume Exim will always slap three addresses
on the same envelope if the recipents all belong to the same domain?

Hmm... very interesting.  So PlusNet's email servers are at fault.
They're a pretty big ISP in the UK.  I doubt they'll change things just
for me.

Have you ever encountered mail servers that only do local deliveries to
the first address on the evelope before?
