Reply To messages failing

I'm trying to use the Reply To function (which I've used successfully for years), but this morning my emails are bouncing with the message
550: restricted characters in address

The hashtag character (#) is shown as %23 in the message, as in I'm using my yahoo account through Apple Mail on ISP

Does anyone know what the problem is?

I don't know - nothing has changed at spamgourmet. I did get an email from someone this morning saying something similar is happening, but I don't know what service he/she is using (or was that you?).

If an email provider is not accepting # as a valid character, then it's not RFC compliant.
