I'm not sure in which RFC (or where else) to look this up. To my
understanding, a period is allowed in the middle of the local part of an
email address but it must be between two characters that are letters of
alphabet or digits; it may not be the first character of the local part,
the last one before the at-sign, nor next to another period or any other
punctuation mark. Is that correct?
Thanks for any help.
Read RFC 822 section 6.2.4 and rfc 1123 section 5.2.16
If you quote it an address like ".John Henry."@domain.com it
should pass through to your system just fine. Then it's up to your
server to treat it the way you want.
