Fixed Possible email bug

#1
I don't know if this is a bug or not, but today I got several server errors because my mailsystem tried to send mails to a user named c:\

This is the corresponding error:

A message that you sent contained one or more recipient addresses that were
incorrectly constructed:

"c:\" <emailmasked@web.de>: unmatched doublequote in local part

This address has been ignored. There were no other addresses in your
message, and so no attempt at delivery was possible.

In a quoted pair, \ is an escape character, so it needs to be escaped itself. This likely only causes an explicit error with the backslash being the last character, otherwise it might just lead to it not being displayed.

As such, this is fixed now. Thanks!
