I'm sorry I didn't word it more clearly. The problem is not with creating folders, just with putting messages into them. If I send a message to "user+detail", the "detail" folder is created just fine, and the message is put there. Problems are axactly with one use case: when I send a message to "alias+detail". In that case it is just put into INBOX regardless of whatever I try to define in sieves with ":detail" rule.
