I'm not sure that all MTAs support the + notation out of the box ...
I know I had to tweak exim to get it to pass through addresses of
style user-spam@host.com ... iirc I would have had to have done the
same for the + notation.
Hi Monique and Debs, Does anyone know which MTA will or won't. Monique,
just for kicks, could you try it? It worked on my generic sendmail and
it worked for my BIG, commerical ISP earthlink. So, I'm just curious?

I got the following error message in my exim logs:

unknown local part "monique+testing" in domain "host.com"

This is version 3.36.

In order to get dashes working (which is what I use instead of the
plus), I have this entry:

 driver = localuser
 transport = local_delivery
 suffix = -*
 suffix_optional = true

I believe I only had to add the last two lines.

The keywords are slightly different in exim4, I believe.
