I have a testbed for INN functions, and your From address
processes fine using INN 1.5.1 code, (which should be
the same code in INN 1.7)

Perhaps the client is not configured properly, or is
otherwise not giving the From address you expect it is.

Please don't disable the check.  It should work fine as
it is.  Basically it finds what is inside <>, and makes
sure there is a '@' and a '.' in the part after the '@'.

As long as the mailbox address is in angle brackets, it
doesn't matter what appears before it.
