CDO using commas in the from field

I am using CDO to send emails but I need to have the from field appear as how Outlook would send an email, e.g. "Schmoe, Joe <>". I can put spaces, but when I put a comma, it truncates the portion of the code after the comma. See code below.

dim objMail 'as CDO.Message

set objMail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
with objMail
      .From = "Schmoe, Joe <>"
      .To = ""
      .Subject = "OLHDR -" & request.form("summary")
      .HTMLBody = messagebody
end with
set objMail = nothing

I think you may be able to get around this using quotes, something like..

.From = """Schmoe, Joe"" <>"

this is because the comma is the delimiter, so it treats must be escaped.. hope this works
