Every since the upgrade from cPanel X to cPanel 11, creating email forwards such as

[email protected] -> [email protected]

does not work. The plus sign gets stripped from the form upon submission and the result is

[email protected] -> [email protected]

This is, obviously, and unexpected result.

RFC 2822 specifically defines how email addresses can be constructed.

The local-part of the address may use any of these ASCII characters:

* Uppercase and lowercase letters (case sensitive)
* The digits 0 through 9
* The characters ! # $ % & ' * + - / = ? ^ _ ` { | } ~
* The character . provided that it is not the first or last character in the local-part.
