mozilla seems to have a different idea of valid e-mail-addresses than rfc2822. As an obsolete (but valid) example, this address: <pcg( Marc)@goof(A.).(Lehmann )com> is not accepted as the personal e-mail-address in the wizard (with or without <>), which is probably ok, since mozilla might require a special syntax, and not a general e-mail-address with nawme etc. More serious is the problem that mozilla garbles this address when sending e-mail to it, gateways just get this: """pcg"@goof.com i.e. the comments haven't been removed (as is required by SMTP, which doesn't use the same format as e.g. To: header lines(!)), but instead garbled in a very strange way into ""-comments. This keeps mozilla users from replying to any e-mail that is formatted similarly. The same problem happens with non-obsolete rfc2822-addresses, if you place comments inside the address phrase.

Even though your example does not match 100% I'll dupe you. That's pretty close and will probably be dealt with in one fix. pi *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 122352 ***
