According to http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc952 underscores are not valid
for hostnames. Yes, they are used sometimes, but in general it is
probably not a good idea to do it.

If this is the only thing where this problem occurs i think it should
not be "fixed", except there is a good reason why underscores in
hostnames are needed.

P.S: Would it be possible to fix the reply to address on this list? I
almost always end up replying to the person who send a mail instead of
to the list.
