URGENT: Strip a header down

HI All;

I have the following string:

"MyODBC List" <myodbc@lists.mysql.com>

I want to lose everything but what is inside the <>, so I need a function/regexp that takes the string above and returns:

myodbc@lists.mysql.com

Lots of points because I want to deal with this quickly.
