Thanks for the pointer to the documentation.

This works expect for expansion in the address fields in Gnus (which is
where I would like expansion following @ to work).  In this case
expansion just doesn't happen, with or without a prefix.

Maybe someone on the in the Gnus newsgroup can enlighten me.  I assume
it is some sort of conflict with the regular Gnus magic which expands
addresses out the BBDB.
