Plus sign in default address is not accepted

I am attempting to set up a catch-all to deliver to an external/non-local domain account. The external account contains a plus sign which CPanel strips out when I configure [email protected] as the catchall. I've had reasonable success in the past with creating a forwarder for messages to [email protected] pointing to the external account, then configuring the catch-all address as [email protected] Unfortunately, after my hosting providers recent CPanel upgrade this appears to have stopped working and I'm no longer getting the wonderful array of spam sent to non-existent addresses @localdomain.com at the external account. Not that I mind if I don't get my offers to make millions from Nigerian 419 scams, but it does hamper my ability to set up one-off accounts that could be published to the web or traded/sold by unscrupulous companies.
Is it possible with user-level access to get this to work again, either with forwarders or with a plus sign in the default address? If not, is there something I can ask my provider to enable/change to allow this to work again?
TIA
Landis

It appears to be working properly configured with a catchall on the local domain forwarding to the external domain. I had neglected to check the account with an account on an external domain and didn't consider that messages sent within the domain could be encountering problems. At least some external messages appear to be going through now, although there are still a couple of external domains that seem to be having some problems, but that could be filters. Either way, this does appear to be working properly now. Thanks!
