Topic: delimiter and subfolder delivery

======== Required information ====

Hi,

Since the change to dovecot 2, delimiters started delivering to subfolders instead of the inbox.  Is there a way to change this behavior?

Relevant info:
# postconf |grep recipient_delimiter
forward_path = $home/.forward${recipient_delimiter}${extension}, $home/.forward
recipient_delimiter = .

# dovecot -a |grep recipient_delimiter
recipient_delimiter = .
   ^^^ added to dovecot.conf

iRedMail defines a transport in Postfix /etc/postfix/master.cf to use Dovecot LDA for local mail deliver, it looks like this:

dovecot ...
    .... -m ${extension}

You can remove '-m ${extension}', restart Postfix service and try again.

Why? Why a non-standard delimiter? Why not use the default one ('+')? Do you know many mail addresses contains '.'?

Thanks!  I'll give that a try.

On my systems I block the use of a period for the name so it's not a problem.  The reason for it is that years ago I did use the + sign; however many commercial sites were coded to not allow a + when checking for 'valid' email addresses.  The plus sign kept getting kicked back as an unallowed character which negated the usefulness of the delimiter in the first place. Hence the change to the period.  I've yet to see that not accepted, and it's helped immensely with spam.  At the very least it's easy to tell who sold my address to spammers...

Thanks again,
