It's a Qmail configuration issue. Qmail has to ignore the '+' and
following text in the local part of the address. I.e., it has to
deliver mail with sent to
"isolation-list-bounces+d54833a6a19099f92febe90bf05a85c86be6c2b3 at modelprinting.com"
as though it were sent to "isolation-list-bounces at modelprinting.com".

I don't know how you configure this in Qmail.
