Dotted usernames

Zmailer still refuses to deliver messages to local dotted usernames. I have

In the following message, it appears from the format of certain
addresses that you have attempted to send a message to somebodys
"Real.Name", or alternatively to an USENET newsgroup.

database did have such a newsgroup.

It is a common mistake to write address alike:   user.host.domain
when you REALLY wanted it to be:                 user@host.domain
