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

    test@mydomain.com -> myemail+test@gmail.com

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

    test@mydomain.com -> myemailtest@gmail.com

    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.

    That looks like our user input sanitizing is just being a bit over eager.


    Edit:

    Did a quick test, the + is being left in place in 11.6.0-C14767



    Forward plus+plus@example.com -> me@example.com correctly left the + intact
