Gerard, thanks for the reply; that's why I asked if question@ should be used. postmaster@ explained that all short forms should work the same way as long ones (ports@ and freebsd-ports@, test@ and freebsd-test@). In my particular case, it is an occult SMTP server problem that (almost) always prevents me from sending to short-version addresses. But according to postmaster@, short forms are OK and legal. Sorry for the noise.
