I wouldn't call limiting your customers to 8 alpha characters 'playing it
safe'. It's almost an unreasonable limitation at this juncture.
I recommend that you review the documentation for your mail server and
determine which chartacters are safe to use. Under most circumstances,
dashes and underscores are allowed, as are periods. Generally, this is
enough to satisfy most customers.
