[Mailman-Users] forcing addition of "hostile address"

Hello. I am trying to add a person to a mail list and having some
problems. Their organization runs some sort of bestial mail system where
the addresses are of the form:
schmoe.j/bhs at dns.u99.k12.il.us
When I try to drop the address in through the mass subscribe screen I get
the following message from Mailman:
* Joe Schmoe -- Hostile address (illegal characters)
My guess is that the / is getting parsed by Mm as an attempt to reference a
file (a la majordomo). Is there a way to force the address onto the
subscriber list? It is an actual valid address for delivery.
Thanks in advance,
