Group: 2.1 (stable)
Status: Open
Resolution: None
Priority: 5
Submitted By: Krellis (krellis)
Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody)
Summary: Valid E-mails Rejected as Invalid

Initial Comment:
I ran into a problem recently with sync_members. I was
attempting to add a list of addresses that included
"---tim--- at krellis.org", but this address was rejected:

bin/sync_members -a=no -f
/usr/local/mailinglists/lists/system-status.txt
system-status
Invalid : ---tim--- at krellis.org
You must fix the preceding invalid addresses first.

While this is an ODD address, it is perfectly legal,
per section 3.4 of RFC 2822
(http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2822.html). Rejecting a
valid address like this seems like a pretty major
problem to me.

This was with MailMan 2.1.6 on FreeBSD 4. If there is
any more information I can provide, please let me know.

Regards,
Tim Wilde
