I originally posted this to the mailing list and it was suggested to post here because their didn't seem to be a known solution. Original post as follows:

Hello -

We are running a Trac system (version 0.10.4) together with mySQL as
the database backend.  Everthing is working great, except for my email
address.  Trac seems to have trouble emailing to addresses with
apostrophes.  What happens is that it sends an email to
"br...@foobar.com" rather than "o'br...@foobar.com", which of course

I've searched through the FAQ as well as the current active tickets
for trac and can see no solution, or really even any discussion.

Has anyone else run across this problem and if so, is there a known

Our setup:

OS: Linux RH4
database: MySQL v 4.1.20
Trac v 0.10.4 (using TracCgi)
Using LDAP for authentication
restrict_owner = true (in trac.ini)

See #6609 for a discussion about e-mail addresses and their detection via regexes in Trac.
