      Description

      MailAddress represents an internet mail address. It is a concrete class including good, standards compliant code for parsing addresses. The strength of this design is that it enforces standards. This is also the weakness of the design. Occasionally, a looser algorithm capable of dealing with non-RFC822 mail would be preferable.

      Consider factoring as a logical interface (implemented as either an empty abstract class - my preference - or an Interface) capable of alternative implementations. The current class would become StandardMailAddress. Consider adding a marker flag for those addresses which are not RFC822 compliant.
