$email = " Ray <ray.paseur@gmail.com>"

// A REGULAR EXPRESSION TO FIND THE FROM-EMAIL ADDRESS
$regex
= '#'         //REGEX DELIMITER
. '.*?'       // ANYTHING OR NOTHING
. '\<'        // ESCAPED WICKET
. '(.*?)'     // GROUP OF CHARACTERS WITH EMAIL ADDRESS
. '\>'        // ESCAPED WICKET
. '#'         // REGEX DELIMITER
;


// ISOLATE THE FROM EMAIL ADDRESS
$from = preg_match($regex, $email, $matches);

I think this should work:

$email = " Ray <ray.paseur@gmail.com>"

// A REGULAR EXPRESSION TO FIND THE FROM-EMAIL ADDRESS
$regex
= '#'         //REGEX DELIMITER
. '.*?'       // ANYTHING OR NOTHING
. '\<'        // ESCAPED WICKET
. '(.*?)'     // GROUP OF CHARACTERS WITH EMAIL ADDRESS
. '\>'        // ESCAPED WICKET
. '#'         // REGEX DELIMITER
;


// ISOLATE THE FROM EMAIL ADDRESS
preg_match($regex, $email, $matches);
$from = $matches[1];
