Wildcard search in gmail

GMail has this very nice "+" feature that I actually use quite a lot. I use it to easily filter my mail and check if my address is being passed along. So for example, if I go to a conference, they always want an e-mail address. I just use

myemail+conferencename@gmail.com

and setup a filter in GMail to filter all messages send to this address and label it.

Now, I've used this feature so often, that I don't really have an overview anymore of all the +'s I've used so far (yes, because occasionally I forget to setup the filter :/ ) I've tried to search for:

to: myemail+*
to: "myemail+"*

and lots of different variations, but no success so far...

So, can anyone help me?
Thanks!

Just a clarification: The "+address" feature is not specifically a Gmail feature. It has been part of the e-mail spec since before the Web. It's just that not all e-mail clients have supported it. –  Al E. Jul 1 '11 at 12:41
    
Thanks, I was not aware of that! –  Roel Jul 1 '11 at 12:49

I've poured over the advanced search docs and tried multiple different things, and it seems to me that you're not going to be able to do what you want with Gmail as it currently exists. Whether you could use a third-party e-mail client and do this I really don't know, but I suspect that it's your best option. –  Al E. Jul 1 '11 at 15:24

I think this is basically already answered by Wildcard search in gmail

Without any kind of wildcard or regex support, it doesn't seem possible.
