Correct. I have written a routine that grabs addresses from a database. It is rather strange what people enter as e-mail addresses. I then sync this to a mailing list.
What I have done to get around the problem is to modify my SQL statement to exclude addresses with spaces in them. Also works :-)
I had to modify sync_members to accept input from stdio though.
