> In dovecots 15-lda.conf uncomment the "recipient_delimiter = +" setting. The delimiter is configured in postfix but apparently not in your dovecot lda config

I am not sure of the location of 15-lda.conf, however in my main dovecot.conf file I added "recipient_delimiter = +"

The output of the lad part of "dovecot -n" is now

> protocol lda {

>   mail_plugins = quota sieve

>   postmaster_address = postmaster at

>   recipient_delimiter = +

> }

However my mail.log file still shows every message is bounced with the following

Any ideas on why this is still not working for me, as its now driving me right up the wall :(
