    Yes. As I posted, postfix now accepts it, but when it goes to deliver it, the LMTP client spits back that there is no such user. I thought perhaps I had to define an alias for each +string I wanted, but trying to do that gives you that the alias is invalid. (details are in a previous post of mine in this thread)

    So, I was wondering what do I need to do to actually deliver it to the user?

    Never mind, I finally got it. I had to shut everything down and restart it -- works as expected now.

    Sorry for the trouble.

    Just for future reference, to set the zimbraMtaRecipientDelimiter option you use the command:
    Code:
    zmprov mcf zimbraMtaRecipientDelimiter +
    -Dana

    I like this idea, it's not something I've come across before. For my personal email, I used to use a catchall and simple make up a new email address for everything, so my address for this forum may be zimbraforum@domain.com and my email address for the local pub may be gettingdrunk@domain.com etc etc.

    Works great for tracing spam culprits, if one of the addresses starts getting spammed, you have a clue who leaked the address. The problem is the use of the catchall account causing an increased amount of random spam anyway.

    But, you all know all of this.

    So I like this email expanding thing. It looks like I need to make a change to the zimbra settings and to the postfix settings? I'd really appreciate a command by command example here as I'm getting to terms with the innards of zimbra but postfix is still an utter mystery to me.

    (unless I have this all wrong and the only think I need to set is the command shown above)

    Cheers

    Ah, working on the "hey, what can go wrong?" principle, I typed
    Code:
    zmprov mcf zimbraMtaRecipientDelimiter -
    and restarted the services and sent a test mail.

    The mail was routed correctly which is great news.

    Default Auto-filtering

    One thing that I miss from our qmail / Cyrus setup is auto-filtering based on the address extension.

    In .qmail-default, the system would attempt to deliver to a mailbox with the same name as the extension, so jhill-folder1@example.com would be delivered to folder1, if it existed, without creating a filter rule. If the directory didn't exist, it would end up in the inbox.

    A similar script is listed here:
    http://www.irbs.net/internet/info-cyrus/0110/0117.html

    I've added it as an ehancement request:

    Okay, now how about a way to filter on the address extensions? I can't seem to find one. Simple to/cc filtering isn't really sufficient, in the case that the user is Bcc'd, or mailing-lists, etc. Really need to use envelope-recipient here, hence the point of address entensions in the first place.

    Default Adding a mail header for filtering purposes

    I have a related problem; I don't use email extensions (at least not much), but I do use a lot of aliases. As M J points out, there is no reliable way to know the envelope recipient -- so there is no way to filter on it. I submitted a bug request on this:

    http://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=15395

    If you think knowing the envelope recipient would be a handy thing, then this would be the place to vote.
