Have you granted "anyone" posting (p) rights in subfolder ?
* plus addressing - Plus addressing allows direct delivery to a particular
mailbox (other than an INBOX). This is done in two ways.
The first way allows delivery to a subfolder of a specific user's INBOX. This
is done via an address of the form: username+mailfolder at domain, which will
deliver to the user's INBOX.mailfolder folder (or altnamespace equivalent).
This submailbox must allow the posting user the 'p' right (generally, this
means 'anyone' must have the 'p' right), otherwise the message will just be
filed into the user's INBOX.
