Email Address tagging

Some mail servers allow a user to append a tag to their email address in order to create an unlimited number of email addresses that all deliver to the same address.  For example, if was someone's main address, and your mail server supports address tagging, then your mail server will also accept email sent to or The text of "+tag" may be used to apply filtering or to create single-use (aka "disposable") addresses.  Where mail servers support this feature, it must also be supported on SpamHero in order to work.
