[Mailman-Users] Email rejected with un-quoted From with a dot

On an old Debian Woody machine running mailmain 2.0.11 Mailman rejects
mail with an un-quoted name part that includes a dot.

    From: Foo B. Baz <foo at invalid.com>

Mailmain then reports:  post from foob.bar requires approval.  While
these work fine:

    From: "Foo B. Bar" <foo at invalid.com>
    From: Foo Barr <foo at invalid.com>

I'm sure I've seen this mentioned someplace before but not having luck
finding it now.

Can anyone point me to info on this.  It would be nice to get a patch
until the machine can be upgraded to Sarge.
