Bzzt...  What version did you switch from ?  This scenario can be
handled by either the virtusertable, or by aliases (Yes, you can do
alias processing on *ANY* mailer, not just local).

I have something like this in my virtusertable - the RHS could also
change the host (not just userid), but I've no need for that:
cowboy@debian.org	cowboy+debian
cowboy+*@debian.org	cowboy+debian+%2
cowboy@us.ibm.com	cowboy+usibm
cowboy+*@us.ibm.com	cowboy+usibm+%2
