When I try to subscribe people using the web form (Membership Management -> 
Mass Subscription), Mailman rejects any name (or rather, initial) that has 
a period in it, claiming that the address is invalid.

Okay, now that I've found the root problem I can get around it. But why is 
it A Good Thing?

By the way, I'm using Mailman 2.1.
