[Mailman-Users] Problems interpreting addresses

Hi all,

A problem & a general question for you:

1) I'm testing mailman here and everything went smoothly up until I
tried to confirm my subscription to a test list. I don't have this
problem with the mailman lists, so I was wondering if anyone else has
had this or if I'm just being daft :)

It seems to have trouble interpreting my From: field (which is "Tony
Abbott <tabbott at intekom.com>"), because in logs/smtp-failures I get:

May 28 07:56:35 1999 TrySMTPDelivery: To tony:
May 28 07:56:35 1999 TrySMTPDelivery:   
Mailman.pythonlib.smtplib.SMTPRecipientsRefused  / {'tony': (501,
'<tony>: recipient address must contain a domain')}  (dequeued)

so it looks to me like it is just taking the first word of the address
when trying to reply instead of the actual email address. It sends the
first message fine when I subscribe via the web page, so the mail does
work, it just seems to grok this address incorrectly. I'm running
mailman v1.0rc1, Python 1.5.2 & Exim 3.01 on Irix 6.2. Any ideas?

2) How ready is Mailman for production use? From the fact that it's for
all intents and purposes reached version 1.0 I assume it's stable. How
well does it scale?
