I guess it's in | reference to the software :>) This is a bit of SMTP foolishness. Some applications put greater-than/less-than brackets around the address, like this: RCPT TO:<firstname.lastname@example.org> and some don't, ie: RCPT TO:email@example.com Some SMTP implementations refuse to accept one or the other format. It's not a very common problem, but it happens occasionally, especially with older versions.
