15460, 36519, 47439. 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.
