I'm having an issue sending to address containing ampersands through exim (eg jack&jill@upthehill.com)

These addresses are technically valid, so I can't really just say "sorry, those addresses will always fail as invalid" as they really should send.

Is there any change I can make to the exim config that will remove this restriction? I'm using Exim 4.7.2 on Debian 6.0.7.

Cheers
