  You may find that post returns the following message:

    post: bad address 'Mr. Foo Bar <fb@somewhere.edu>' - no at-sign
    after local-part (Bar), continuing...

  The unquoted dot causes "Mr. Foo" to be parsed as the local part of
  the address. Either remove the dot, or rewrite the address as
  follows:

    "Mr. Foo Bar" <fb@somewhere.edu>
    (Mr. Foo Bar) <fb@somewhere.edu>
    (Mr. Foo Bar) fb@somewhere.edu
