BusyBox v1.18.5 on Toastman Tomato Linux running on an Asus RT-N16 router

Summary: When using sendmail with a user friendly name in the TO field,
sendmail butchers it to where the mail is undeliverable.

Using the busybox command:
sendmail -t -f no-reply at myserver.com -S MyServer -auMyUser -apMyPass < mail.txt

And mail.txt is:

To: "John Smith the Third" <john at yahoo.com>
From: Joe at MyServer.com
Date: Sat, 20 Apr 2013 11:01:42 -0400
Subject: test mail

Test Message.

For some reason, sendmail strips the quote characters and brackets from the TO
field, and incorrectly generates the following line:

RCPT TO:<johnsmiththethirdjohn at yahoo.com>

It should not do that.
