SMTP troubles in FM10: Incorrect address format

Description of the issue

I'm in FileMaker Pro 10 on Mac OS 10.4.11.   On the server, I'm able to send test notifications via the SMTP server with no problems.  But on clients, sending email via the SMTP server doesn't work (I get the Couldn't-send-email window).  The mail server log shows these lines: cmd: MAIL FROM:rsp: 501 Incorrect Address Formatcmd: QUITAs you can see, the From address (which I entered as simply "") was mangled.  Might this be a problem with curly quotes, or encoding ("UTF-8" appears in the garbled address)?  If so, how do I get rid of curly quotes, or change the encoding used? Thanks!    - Randy
