Same with these addresses:

- accepts "12345."domain.com and returns me RFC incompliant
- accepts rfc incompliant address ""@domain.com

You're right.

'.' is allowed to show up anywhere in the local-part unquoted... except
as the first or last character! Sigh.

There is quoting logic, if I remember correctly, but it is looking for
characters that must always be quoted, it doesn't check for a '.' as the
first or last character.
