    Default Does Zimbra support automatic email dash aliases?

    I have looked through the forums and can't find any topics related to this so maybe someone could help me out. I am migrating from a qmail server and one great feature that I implemented for my users was "automatic email dash alias". Let me explain what I mean by "automatic email dash aliases" (maybe someone has better terminology).

    When I create an email address for the user this automatically lets them use that email address and append a dash and any word to their name followed by the @ sign and doman name. For Example: If my email was dwp@test.com, I could type in dwp-zimbra@test.com, or dwp-spamcop@test.com and that alias would automatically forward to dwp@test.com mailbox.

    I am wondering if there is any equivalent feature like this in Zimbra? If this is possible could you point me in the right direction of getting this working for my zimbra install. If this is not possible is it on the roadmap because my users (including myself) use this feature alot.

    Thanks

    *EDIT: This is feature is supported in gmail but instead of dash they use a (+) plus sign.
