Error: Illegal SMTP address: Invalid.SMTP@
Trace:    at KVS.EnterpriseVault.LotusDomino.SMTPBoundary.IsInternalAddress(String address)

When the registry value 'InternalSMTPDomains' is set at the 'Agents' key level and a message from the Journal Mailbox is examined to determine whether or not an address is internal or external; this error will occur when there is an invalid SMTP address present in the address list of one or more e-mails attempting to be Archived from the Domino Journal Mailboxes.

One example of an invalid SMTP address format that is known to cause this error is when a space exists between the @ and the domain:

'Invalid.SMTP@ domain.name'
