For what it's worth, that's not an RFC-compliant address. Any addresses
with spaces need to be enclosed within quotations, i.e
If I remember, most of the address-related routines in Mailman split
on whitespace when extracting addresses from headers, in the Web interface,
etc., so the issue is unfortunately a lot more complex.
As far as I know there's currently no way to gracefully handle addresses
with spaces in them.
Another issue I'd like to eventually deal with is plus-addressing, so
Mailman interprets firstname.lastname@example.org = email@example.com
for purposes of "authentication."
