I think this is a bad example. A better example is a folder:

I've a mailbox user.paul and a folder "user.paul.postbank". When I send
a message to "paul+postbank at" the message comes in my
inbox, and not in the folder "postbank".

I've also tried in /etc/postfix/virtual:
postbank at  paul+postbank
But it does not help.

I am using Cyrus 2.1 what comes with Debian.
