Here's an example of how this works:
-Let's say you subscribed to the gentoo-dev list as `jim@home.com`, but you'd also like to post to the list using your `james@work.com` email address.
-To do this, send a message (as `james@work.com`) to `gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org`.
-You should then be allowed to post to gentoo-dev using both your home and work email addresses.
-In line with the original spam reduction goal, if you post to the list from a non-subscribed address, your mail will be delivered to <tt>/dev/null</tt>.

You will not receive any bounce message from our servers. This prevents spammers from forging your address to get a bounce delivered to you.
