Uh, I didn't even know about about that gmail special feature "plus
addressing". You didn't mention that, I thought you created another
full account.
I learned it there : http://www.php.net/manual/fr/ref.mail.php#70912
I suppose gmail accounts cannot have + then ?

So yeah it seems it's gmail smtp server that accepts name+foo address,
but it drops the +foo part.
And gmail web interface must do something special to talk to smtp server then.

But you don't need a different address to filter messages from a
mailing list. Or maybe you have other special needs.
