Domino: Email Reply to email address to Parent and Child Domains

I'm having issues with users replying to email that comes from parentcompany.  

Users are receiving email from other users from parent company, for this example parent Domain is 'ABC' and child Domain is 'DEF'.  The header of emails contain the From, sendTo and other copyTo address.  Some of the addresses are formated in the following manner, 'John_Doe@ABC.com' others are formated 'John Doe@ABC.com' notice the underline in address.  When user from child company replies to message the address with the underline return the same address.  However the email addresses with the space inbetween the first name and last name return outgoing email address as John Doe/abc@ABC or John Doe@abc as common internal messages of Jane Doe/DEF.

I orginally thought the problem stemmed from address listed in the Recent Contacts, so I changed users Recent Contact parameters to only add contacts of documents sent as well as removed contacts from this view and the DIP bianary file.   I still have the same issue.

Are there any other suggestions.

The only incorrect address that I see in your question is 'John Doe@ABC.com', spaces are not allowed in internet addresses.

In addition to Sjef: See rfc 821 and rfc 822

I tested this in my envronment.  Although address seems not to resolve (my name formatted like in your John doe@abc or john doe@abc.com), as evidenced by not showing the Name details or Available times when creating a meeting when rightclicked, it IS delivered correctly, with sendTo still exactly like I entered it.
When the email has arrived (so after the mail router has worked its magic), above mentioned right click actions DO work.

So I repeat: since mail delivery works, what is the problem?

Sorry for the delayed response.  Vacation takes presidence over all issues.  

My problem is, when users try to reply to email the email address of ie. John Doe@ABC.com is translated to John Doe/abc@ABC or John Doe@abc  (Again ABC is Parent company domain).

When they hit send a mail delivery failure occurs.

Parent company had better not include the /abc

Are you using Lotus Notes as well, or only the parent company?
