There are still lots of idiotic web sites that assume everything in 
front of the @ must be a letter, digit, dot, or hyphen, and even some 
that only permit one dot after the @... even though for 30 years or so, 
the RFCs have permitted a nice variety of other special characters, 
although not all of them.
