incorrect formatted email address spam getting through

I just received a spam email that created an address, but it was in a completly wrong format. This was it:

It had my username twice with a pipe inbetween and it succeeded in creating an address with username|username as the name part. No dots in the email name part at all so it is also in the wrong format.

I would hav ethought that this should have failed just for that reason? Any ideas about this?
