I'm trying to track message on exchange 2010, but am getting the following error using the "&" character.  and getting the error below.  Is there any way around this?

Get-Transportserver | Get-MessageTrackingLog -recipients Test&Email@comcast.net -Start "08/11/2016 11:00:00" -End "08/12/2016 12:00:00" | Select-Object eventid,sender,timestamp,@{Name="Recipients";Expression=$_.recipients}},@Name="RecipientStatus";Expression={$_.recipientstatus}},messagesubject | ConvertTo-Html > "g:\temp\message
track.html"


Error:
