Let me echo that.  Why not store the full e-mail address syntax
permitted by RFC822, such as:

	"Don Porter" <dgporter at erols.com>

I was happy to see that Mailman accepted such addresses in the
"mass subscribe" web interface.  I was disappointed when I visited the
subscriber list and all that remained was "dgporter at erols.com".

My apologies if that is a naive question.
