Get the redirect email address Can't Post

Hi everybody,
I'm looking for a perl module able to give me the redirected email address.
In other words, when I have an email address, I would like to connect to the email server and ask for the redirection for the specified user if there is one.

Is there someone who know how to do this ?
I know the very good modul Mail::CheckUser but this one is only checking the validness of email address.

Thx for your help.

As far as I know, there isn't a way to do that. Mail sent to a server checks the users' .redirect (or .forward) file for email forwarding instructions. Aside from logging into the account and looking in these files, I don't think it can be done. Of course, I can be wrong :)
