Disable angle brackets in bounced email addresses.

Exchange 2007

I have an email campaign application which looks up email addresses from an SQL table, sends an email, and has the ability to process bounced emails.  The problem I have is if the email comes back as a bounce from Exchange, the email address is surrounded with left and right angle brackets such as <>.  Is it possible to configure Exchange to NOT add the angle brackets?
