- "Ampersand" in email addresses

I hope someone can help me...
I work in a large organisation which a network of 24,000 computers. We use
Outlook and Microsoft Exchange Servers for our email platform. However, I
have come across a problem...
A number of our mailboxes have the ampersand character in the email address
(ie. The '&' character). However, when trying to use a hyperlink to these
addresses, all that appears in the "To:" field in Outlook are the characters
BEFORE the ampersand, and nothing from the ampersand onwards. As a result,
Outlook is unable to recognise the email address!
How do I code the link? I have tried using "&" instead of just "&" in
the HTML code, but this makes no difference.

> Hi All
I use OE on my PC at home and just tried sending myself mail with & in the
Worked just fine sending and receiving.
Myhost uses a unix server though.
It's possible that you may have to change some kind of permission in the
server to accept the & and other special characters.
