I didn't think there was a manual, that's why I was surprised when I saw this:

It worked, surprised it effected an address that had no prefix or 
suffix in the local_part.

Thanks everyone, I'm off to read the manual for an explination on why 
it effected a local_part with no prefix or suffix.

There is no manual.  Where did you see a reference to section 18.5 of 
the manual?  Are you confusing this with something like imapd.conf(5) or 
imapd(8)?  These are UNIX manual page references, e.g:

man imapd
man imapd.conf
