Enable Plus Addressing

This article applies to recent versions of SmarterMail. View articles for SmarterMail 15.x and earlier.

Plus addressing is a useful feature that allows users to automatically filter incoming emails into folders without pre-creating those folders or filters to handle them. 

Plus addressing works by allowing users to use special email addresses when signing up for newsletters or email subscriptions. For example, if user@example.com needs to provide a valid email address to sign up for a newsletter, he can sign up for the newsletter using the address [user]+[technewsletter]@example.com. When the newsletter is delivered, it will automatically be routed to the Technewsletter folder. If the folder does not exist, it will be created automatically.

Follow these steps to enable plus addressing:

  1. Log in to SmarterMail as a user.
  2. Click on the Settings icon.
  3. Click Account Settings from the menu on the left. 
  4. On the User card, select the Plus Addressing drop-down box and choose the desired action. Plus addressing is available by default, it's simply a matter of choosing what you want done with a message sent to a Plus address. 
  5. Click Save.
