emailing trello boards "email address invalid"

I am running into an issue with e-mailing to trello.

I can do so from outlook but my business sytem MYOB gives me an error message "email address in invalid" I am told it is because the trello e-mail adress use non non standard character "+".
Is there any way to amend the trello address' to take this out?

Sounds like your MYOB system is broken - a + in an email address is perfectly valid, but a lot of badly written code fails to handle it correctly (before I sound too smug about Atlassian/Trello getting that one right, they fail valid email stuff in other places)

There is not a lot you can do about this, other than swap to an email that does not have the + in it.

definately a MYOB issue, although they are saying that a couple of the big ISP's cant handle commas and other symbols either...

I was just hoping there may have been a work around in Trello.
