If someone bothers to report a bug, I doubt he/she gives a bogus email
address. And if he does, the alternative is probably that the bug
wouldn't be reported at all. Which I think is worse than getting bogus
bug reports.

And to make it even less likely to get bogus addresses, I added "Show
the address only to admins" to http://dovecot.org/tmp/bug.html
