I posted this as a rider in another posted but it was suggested that I start a new thead
Yesterday I tried to send an email to [email protected] It wasn't xyz but it was three letters. A message was immediately flagged up, before even trying to send the email, that it wasn't a valid email address. I changed the recipient's name to oded at the same address (xyz-int.com) and it was accepted.
Am I missing something important here? Why should oded be accepted and gilad not? BTW the emails were to Israel and they are men's names in Hebrew.
Here are the responses so far:

Mail programs don't valid the names just the format its typed in.
You can have [email protected]xtenstion you like and mail programs don't care. As long as it's typed in correctly.
A client had this problem and didn't realise that one or two entries in his address book had commas and spaces.
Try it again and it should work...

Jester - the address was brought up by clicking on the address at their website, it wasn't typed in by me. When I changed the name, all I did was delete the "gilad" and insert "oded"
