Since a user asked this question again in the kde forum yesterday, I did check 
that it was still working.  I have a "Test Distribution" list that sends a 
message to me at three different email addresses.  I used the Select button on 
the To line, and I received all three messages.

However, remember that this is a backport.  I don't know what impact that has 
on a gentoo system - whether it requires some black magic to get the backport 
included :-)
