is garbage -- that doesn't parse, according to RFC 822, because there
was no ":" before the addr-spec. You wanted a comma there. The only
legal non-quoted use of ";" is to terminate a "group" of addresses,
To: some losers: loser one, loser two; someone else
but of course just about no MUA in the world correctly parses that
latter form correctly either, so basically, using a ";" in an address
field is painting a big old kick-me sign on your back.
Mmmm, more RFC822 landmines...
