Speaking of breaking am I misinterpreting what is planed, i.e., even wildcard aliases are going to require verification? If so that will mean all the email addresses I've set up for various recipients (e.g., *@service.letterboxes.org) will become useless!. I depend on these with appropriately chosen alias targets (the alias's "Deliver to" setting) to automatically sort into mailboxes for the names I choose for the wildcard.

I think it was also mentioned verify won't be required for aliases I own. So if I own (using the previous example) [email protected] does that mean FM won't require verification for *@service.letterboxes.org? Currently the verify button is not on them so I assume that's as intended - at the moment. If this changes my entire setup using aliases becomes effectively useless if I have to verify them before I use them.

Just trying to understand all this. If the above is correct then I can see why *@letterboxes.org is an "edge" case so that's why the verify button is there. But as I said in a previous post I could still use it even though it was unverified but note the test I did was to my one of my own aliases.
