Email Address With Apostrophe being kicked back

we are attempting to send an email to a vendor that has an apostrophe in his email address and we are getting a kick back from our Exchange 2007 server.  Is there any fix for this because the apostrophe goes against the RFC naming for email addresses?  Here is what we are getting:


pxxxx.o’xxxxx@xxxxx-xxx.com
#550 5.1.3 STOREDRV.Submit; invalid recipient address #SMTP#

Original message headers:

Received: from txx-exch07.xxxxxxxx-xxxxx.local ([192.168.1.15]) by
 txx-exch07.xxxxxxxx-xxxxx.local ([192.168.1.15]) with mapi; Thu, 30 Aug 2012
 09:46:35 -0400
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain
Date: Thu, 30 Aug 2012 09:46:35 -0400
Message-ID:
 <6F8B2A950146C842B8C925CF248D659DE63CA07A80@xxx-exch07.xxxxxxxx-xxxxx.local>

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Any email address with a Symbol wouldnt work as Exchange cannot understand it and hence rejects.

It is an internal user attempting to send a message to an external vendor.

Which is the generating server as what i read is Exchange shouldnt act like this ?
Do you send emails using Specific Connector ?

Our server is the one generating the error.  It is going out our default send connector which handles all outgoing mail.

Is there a firewall after the HUB before sending to external ... if so check it as Exchange shouldnt do this.

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Email_address , special characters can be used inside quotation marks like: "sean.o'reilly"@ire.com .
