The syntax rule in RFC 5322 that rejects this is rather annoying.  There's
nothing one can do about it at this juncture, but it's rather silly that
this is a syntax error on the LHS of either a message ID or an e-mail
address.  It makes sense on the RHS, but periods really shouldn't have had
a special meaning on the LHS.

    Please send questions to the list rather than mailing me directly.
     <http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/faqs/questions.html> explains why.
