I think you want to go the router route, rather than a system filter,
because I'm pretty sure that the filter given here will fail for
messages BCC'd to the +27 address. As well, if the message is sent to
"+27xxx@???, anotheruser@???", then it will
only get delivered to the +27 user, but not to anotheruser. You'd also
need a "foranyaddress" in there, to handle multiple addresses in h_To.

All told, the router seems much simpler to get right.
