Subject: Pseudo bug in milter-sender 0.62

More information..: http://www.milter.info/#Support

In milter-sender 0.62 and previous, milter-sender will reject invalid mail 
from lines with "553 5.1.[37] invalid domain name"
This includes mail from lines that have a space in them.  These mail from 
lines are accepted by sendmail.  While these types of addresses are 
technically wrong, trying to explain that to some users is an excercise in 

With milter-sender:
mail from:<foo@foo.com >
553 5.0.0 <foo@foo.com >... .1.7invalid domain name
mail from:<foo@foo.com>
250 2.1.0 <foo@foo.com>... Sender ok

Without milter-sender:
mail from:<foo@foo.com >
250 2.1.0 <foo@foo.com >... Sender ok

Any chance of a fix to allow space characters?
