I have a mailserver that I configured with the website: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Complete_Virtual_Mail_Server

At the Amavis en Clamd instructions: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Complete_Virtual_Mail_Server/amvisd_spamassassin_clamav I get stuck on the spam configuration.
When I send the test spam mail I get a mail returned stating that elmar+spam(at)elmarotter(dot)eu (@ and . replaced with (at) and (dot) does not exists. That is of course correct.
But I don't want it to be send to user+spam@domain. Does anyone know where the adding of the +spam at the user is configured?

For me, sendmail's cf file seems to handle the user+mailbox designations.
Unfortunately finding data about how to write sendmail.cf is a pain. There must be some language to it but it looks arcane to me... The stock gentoo sendmail.cf seems to work fine however.

In /etc/postfix/main.cf you have
Code:
# ADDRESS EXTENSIONS (e.g., user+foo)
#
# The recipient_delimiter parameter specifies the separator between
# user names and address extensions (user+foo). See canonical(5),
# local(8), relocated(5) and virtual(5) for the effects this has on
# aliases, canonical, virtual, relocated and .forward file lookups.
# Basically, the software tries user+foo and .forward+foo before
# trying user and .forward.
#
recipient_delimiter = +

Thanks, adding 'recipient_delimiter = +' to '/etc/postfix/main.cf' solved it.
