Commented:
That message tells that the FROM in the mail header is malformed (non-RFC), and there is a strict check involved (e.g. for SPAM detection). Compare the email headers of both mails to see if there is a difference in FROM.
For valid formats, the formal definition is here https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2822, but https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Email_address is certainly a better read ;-).
