Looking at rfc822:

     addr-spec   =  local-part "@" domain        ; global address
     local-part  =  word *("." word)             ; uninterpreted
                                                 ; case-preserved
     word        =  atom / quoted-string
     atom        =  1*<any CHAR except specials, SPACE and CTLs>

'-' (dash) character is not listed in "specials" and so zmailer is
probably wrong refusing it.  "-j" is a valid "word".
