Just in case everything else fails, I've got some C code (for my self-written
mailer) that parses mail addresses. Perhaps there exist mailers that output
addresses in a format that my C code doesn't handle, but I haven't ever seen
such a format. And I've used my own mailer in the last couple of years, so I
should've noticed if I'd got such a mail.
Just send me a mail if this code snippet is of interest.
