I think that 1.94.1 would have complained about the space there, but I
could be wrong.
Sendmail seems to accept an entire address as a domain-literal
(i.e. enclosed in square brackets). It shouldn't; RFC822 says it's

Well, you can run validate addresses (from
ftp://ftp.hpc.uh.edu/pub/majordomo) periodically to check your lists for
bad things. You might also try hacking the code directly into Majordomo.
Here's what proto-2.0 has to say about it:
XYX:sina:mj/2.0/bin> ./mj_shell subscribe test-list '[<jewel-request>] [<email@example.com>]'
**** The following was not successfully added to test-list:
Domain literals (words in square brackets) are only permitted on
the right hand side of an address: [<jewel-request>] [<firstname.lastname@example.org>]
Did you mistakenly enclose the entire address in square brackets?
I suppose a completely enlightening message would be pretty difficult to
cook up for an address this broken, but at least they get a hint of the
problem and the address stays off of the list.
