Hi Juan:

I believe that symbol represents a space at the end of the e-mail address.
See http://www.sightspecific.com/~mosh/WWW_FAQ/nbsp.html.

If there is only 20 of these addresses, you can just do a mass unsubscribe
via the admin interface and re-subscribe them with the correction made.

Kind regards,
Brian Carpenter

Subject: [Mailman-Users] mass edit of subscriber addresses

Is it possible to perform a mass edit of subscribers for a certain

I found in my postfix logs about 20 such messages:

warning: Illegal address syntax from localhost[] in RCPT
command: <user at example.com&nbsp>

Notice the '&nbsp' at the end of the recipient's address.  I have no
idea how that happened.

Is there any way to correct the situation on the command line?

Thank you in advance,
