    We have a program that was written for us by an outside contractor for which we have taken over the hosting. In order to install on our client's computer it performs several checks, one of which is sending an email through username+mydomain.com on port 26. We have not been able to get the server on which we have this hosted to accept that username. This username is hardcoded (java) and cannot be changed.

    The original hosting was on a HostIgnition Profire server, so we have arranged the same hosting for mail.mydomain.com and set a DNS 'A' record on our main server to point mail.mydomain.com to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (my ip). What else do we need to do to get this to work? How do we make it accept the '+' sign in the username?
