[qmail] Greylisting problems with apostrophe (HowTo by meshier.com)

    I installed Greylisting today successfully. Thanks to Brent Meshier and his HowTo: Adding Greylisting support to qmail on Plesk 8

    Plesk: 8.0
    SuSE: 10.1
    Kernel: 2.6.13-15.11-default (installed by strato.de)

    I posted some solutions on errors, too, but I have one major problem:

    Greylisting works fine, but somehow all mail addresses with apostrophe like:
    - doorsinstruction's@acceris.com
    - doggerel'srusseting@aaconline.com
    - Juliette'sgranularity@abyc.com
    are ignored and delivered instantly to my GMAIL account, which marks them as spam.

    MySQL shows every address and every message is greylisted now, exept senders with apostrophe (see above).

    Is this a bug or a feature? Is it just my problem or is anybody else able to reproduce the problem?

    Best regards,
