"Reject with reason" reveals my main email address for spammers.

I have email (alias) address, say oldemail@mydomain.com. It have been under spam attacks for months. So, I decided to add rule "Reject with reason" with condition "contains oldemail@mydomain.com" and with the reason message being addressed to the appropriate human (not spambot) senders :

This email address (oldemail@mydomain.com) is on spamlists. If you are a human contact me at new email address new**e**mail at mydomain dot com. Remove all asterisks. Change at and dot.

Now, newemail@mydomain.com is my new main email.

I've decided to do some tests and sent test "spam message" to oldemail@mydomain.com from external address. And I recieved "reject message" which looked like:


Your message to <newemail@mydomain.com> was automatically rejected: This email address (oldemail@mydomain.com) is on spammers lists. If you are human contact me at new email address new**e**mail at mydomain dot com. Remove all asterisks. Change at and dot.


That is, my new email address was revealed in plain vanilla form!

How can I change this behaviour? If can't, could you please change response template or add new "Reject with reason" action without revealing main email address.

Thank you
