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 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] 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.

Applies to SmarterMail 8.x - 15.x
