Thanks for pointing this out Mike! We use the Sophos too & I didn't realize this was a problem until you pointed it out.

This worked fine in 7.0.1, but is now broken in IR1 WebAccess.

We generate Spam Digest reports using SOPHOS's PureMessage twice each day.
The digest report allows our end-users to release their messages by replying to the digest report.
<see sample digest report attached>

The digest report contains a reply to address something like "pmx-auto-approve+ <long digest ID#>"
In the Desktop GW client, the address works fine.
In the GW Webaccess client, the + is changed to a -, because the original address is passed as a % (in HTML code).
When the end-user replies, it bounces because the user is unknown with the - 
With the + present, it passes the user "pmx-auto-approve" plus the digest ID to the PureMessage Engine.

Novell Netmail 3.5x also has this issue, but has never been resolved.

Thought I would point this issue out for SP2.
