Re: Does this address really violate RFC822?
The trailing dot on JCASTON.@ is illegal.
See RFC822 section 6.1. SYNTAX:
addr-spec = local-part "@" domain ; global address
local-part = word *("." word) ; uninterpreted
If you have a ".", then you must have a word following it.
atom = 1*<any CHAR except specials, SPACE and CTLs>
word = atom / quoted-string
and atom's must be at least one character (or ""), therefore the "empty" word
following the dot is illegal.
