Okay, this does show the domain listed.

So, it's interesting, it says rcpt to: +consulting/ownit, should this 
say something else, like bb+consulting/ownit or just consulting/ownit?  
I know when I use the deliver program to just consulting/ownit it is 
delivered fine. 

Thank you again for your help, I think we're getting closer!
