Such addresses are characteristic of HP OpenMail (aka Samsung Contact),
and indeed if you go to <http://dns.u46.k12.il.us/> (the actual host in
question), you can see that's what's being used.  Accounts in OpenMail
contain slashes, as do the associated email addresses.  [The slashes
delineate "mailnodes" and derive from the product's X.400 origins.] HP
even gave away licenses for small installations of the linux version
several years ago, which is probably how it came to be on a K-12 site.
