Description Tom Lancaster 2000-08-23 18:57:26 UTC
The @ in the recipient address in the new syntax for formmail needs to be
escaped, or it causes a 500. This is a step backwards from the old
behavior. Needs fixing.

This problem goes all the way back to ParseHelper() in ASP.pm. I've fixed the
problem and sent the patch upstream. Now, you are free to include naughty
characters and even newlines in XML-Style argument lists.
