Ampersands in email addresses

Just ran a few thousand users from Oracle Calendar into Exchange (at a very security conscious site so we were not able to look at their mappings beforehand), and they had some problems with ampersands in email names.

Yep. Bad karma all around.

In fact, you should not be using most special characters for object names, as Microsoft documents here for Exchange 2003 and here for Exchange 2007.
