Procmail is my LDA and is set up in what seems to be the standard
manner in sendmail.cf: at least, this follows the example in the
##### @(#)procmail.m4 8.5 (Berkeley) 12/28/95 #####
Mprocmail, P=/usr/bin/procmail, F=DFMmShu, S=11/31, R=21/31, \
A=procmail -m $h $f $u
Well, this is definition of the procmail mailer, not the local mailer.
Furthermore, there's more to plus-addressing support than the
definition of the local mailer. Ruleset 0 or 5 needs to be set up to
move everything after the + into the 'host' variable ($h). Unless you
have a strong understanding of sendmail rulesets and rewriting rules,
you should not attempt to add plus-addressing to your sendmail.cf, but
instead just install the latest version of sendmail and use the m4
sendmail.cf generation tools with a .mc file that contains:
plus whatever else your site requires.
