[Bug 745432] [NEW] Email address with leading or trailing space is not accepted by web subscribe.

Public bug reported:

If an address is entered on the web listinfo subscribe form with a
leading or trailing space, it is rejected with the message "The email
address you supplied is not valid. (E.g. it must contain an '@'.)". This
is confusing to the user who looks at the address and sees it does
contain an '@' and appears valid.

Leading and trailing whitespace should be stripped from the address
entry.
