 Have you figured out how to make it cancel a post when the originator used an
 invalid address?

For the originator to have used an invalid address, (s)he must have been
connected to a brain-dead (or at least old) site. Simply crank up your
favourite news software pointing to this site and it should (in theory)
work ok. Some software is more selective about addresses for cancel
postings, in which case you may have to use ihave.

Do both of the above.
