    One feature of many MTAs these days is subaddressing. Meaning you could have email sent to username.subaddress@domain.com and it would go to the "subaddress" folder in username's email folder.

    Such functionality is not built into cpanel/whm, but it can be added. I was wondering is anyone has.

    If there's enough support, this could be a great feature to add to cpanel. gmail has this feature and it's been very nice to be able to sign up for mailing lists with username.LISTS@domain.com and have all of it filtered into its own folder automatically.

    Here are some links on the subject matter:

    Not knowing much about the bugzilla system myself, could someone make a feature request if this gets enough positive feedback?

    Apparently, it's very easy to implement subaddressing in exim. All that needs to be done is to enable it, and then set up .forward filters to sort them out.

    How would one make a wilcard .forward to automatically make folders and sort based on the subaddress? Users would be loathe to create an new imap folder and .forward rule for every subaddress they want, so the rule should automatically create folders for new subaddresses it finds.
