If you enter a User Name as:
"Henrik Gemal"
that's including the "'s in the User Name of the Account Settings the header 
being send becomes:
From: Henrik Gemal <gemal@dk.net>

but if you enter:
Henrik "The Man" Gemal
the header being send becomes:
From: Henrik \"The Man\" Gemal <gemal@dk.net>

So should
"Henrik Gemal"
become:
\"Henrik Gemal\" <gemal@dk.net>

???

This is invalid. We can't control what other people put in there username. In
addition we escape the names that are displayed for security reasons (among
others). Marking invalid.
