syntactically correct formations of the line could be:

From: (Joe \(Joseph\) Bloggs) joe(_at_)joe(_dot_)com
or even
From: Joe (\(Joseph\)) Bloggs <joe(_at_)joe(_dot_)com>

Or From: "Joe \(Joseph\) Bloggs" <joe(_at_)example>
or From: Joe (Joseph) Bloggs <joe(_at_)example>

or From: Joe "\(Joseph\)" Bloggs <joe(_at_)example(_dot_)com>
or From: Joe "(Joseph)" Bloggs <joe(_at_)example(_dot_)com>

But Frank is exactly right: The original thing is not a legal phrase in any of these standards.
