email aliases special characters

    I'm trying to setup a mail alias:


    that is an e with acute

    Plesk says invalid alias.

    So is there a way to escape that character in plesk?

    I've tried: st\xe9phanie which works on my old box.

    Or how do I manually add this, and where?

    Would it get erased by plesk if manually added?

    can anyone even send to that address?

    I don't think the / is going to be supported by the smtp rfc.

    special chars

    accented characters must be supported, all languages besides english use them.

    It currently works the slash just is the code to explain that accented e character.

    How do I get plesk to accept that, or where in qmail do I manually enter that path?

    found it

    So I found it, you have to add it in the database psa under the mail_aliases table.

    The question I have now is if I update the table manually will it work? How does plesk interface with the qmail program using the table?

    I guess I'll just try it and see... any insight?
