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

But according to postmaster@, short forms are OK and legal.

Sorry for the noise.
