A different "+tag"

It seems like the +tag is a nifty capability for many reasons. I am wondering how difficult would it be to have an alternative tag, e.g. -tag. In which case we’d have user-whatever@domain.net etc.

Rationale: G-Suite offers an -tag option, which means that switching from G-Suite to MIAB would be only possible if I use a catchall alias, which is of course not desirable for more than one user.

Appreciate any thoughts or recommendations. Of course, if this is a trivial option, then I am equally grateful for a pointer or two.

You could try experimenting with recipient_delimiter.

@openletter Thanks so much.

So this works:

for f in /etc/dovecot/conf.d/15-lda.conf /etc/dovecot/conf.d/90-sieve.conf /etc/postfix/main.cf; 
     mailinabox/tools/editconf.py "$f" recipient_delimiter=-; 
service dovecot restart
service postfix restart
