  Like I said in preceding part, it is completely ok for the smtpserver
  to accept the recipient address, and then router to reject it latter on.

  I think you just tried, and saw that it bounces.

  Manually, like always.

  Most likely the router scripts are not updated, and that is where
  the trouble lies.
  During this discussion you haven't mentioned which ZMailer version
  you are running  (or I have missed it), I see mentions re: "dequote"
  at following entries:

1999-08-31  Matti Aarnio  <mea@mea.tmt.tele.fi>

	* proto/cf/rrouter.cf:
	    Another missed "$(dequote ...)" call.  Without this,
	    pipe/file stores don't get "magic" 'pipe.*' and 'file.*'
	    local channel tags so that all other cases can safely
	    be run to procmail as the local delivery agent.

1999-08-30  Matti Aarnio  <mea@mea.tmt.tele.fi>

	* Makefile.in:
	    Version 2.99.52-pre1

  Thus *any* 2.99.52 should be safe in standard configuration.
  (After -pre2, of course.)
