Hi Mark,

Thanks for the response.

Yes, it's on cPanel... But I would've thought it would still be a standard
mm install in the back end???

Anyway, url encoding the quotes made no difference I'm afraid... But it did
point me in the right direction. Replacing the < and > chars around the
address with the url encodes %3C and %3E made it work.

So fixed. Thanks!

The fact that you show the list name as list_domain indicates this is
cPanel, so the code you are looking at is not the actual code you are
dealing with.

However, in standard Mailman, and I don't *think* cPanel is different in
this respect, what you show above should work if Firstname and Lastname
don't contain special characters such as '.'. If they do, you need to
quote it as

%22Firstname%20Lastname%22%20<email at otherdomain>

and the %22 quotes won't hurt even if they aren't needed
