You're on the wrong track. You don't need to setup anything. This is the default configuration for DreamHost e-mail. If it doesn't work, stop jumping to conclusions and contact support. The only problem you should be having is with non-DreamHost systems that are improperly programmed to reject using addresses with a + sign.
