+tag addresses don't work?

The instructions about +tag addresses state:

“Every incoming email address also receives mail for +tag addresses. If your email address is you@yourdomain.com, you’ll also automatically get mail sent to you+anythinghere@yourdomain.com. Use this as a fast way to segment incoming mail for your own filtering rules without having to create aliases in this control panel.”

When I send a test email to test+me@myMailServer.com, the email gets rejected, and bounces back.

Any thoughts?

@hzink Is test@myMailServer.com set up as a mail user or a mail alias?

No. me@myMailServer.com is set up.

It works the other way around?

Yes. test+me@myMailServer.com will be delivered to the inbox test … and then assuming that you have set filters up in Roundcube it will be handled as specified with the filter.

If it makes you feel any better, I just discovered that I was also doing it the wrong way around. Thanks for posting this!
