Where did you see that ?
In rfc822 i can't find that limitation.
There i see:
Note: For purposes of display, and when passing such struc-
tured information to other systems, such as mail proto-
col services, there must be NO linear-white-space
between <word>s that are separated by period (".") or
at-sign ("@") and exactly one SPACE between all other
<word>s. Also, headers should be in a folded form.
The local-part of an addr-spec in a mailbox specification
(i.e., the host's name for the mailbox) is understood to be
whatever the receiving mail protocol server allows. For exam-
ple, some systems do not understand mailbox references of the
form "P. D. Q. Bach", but others do.
