Hello MailScanner,

There seems to be a problem with cgp2ms and ms2cgp when a email
address contains an & sign.

For example
I send an email to jena&jema at where
is not a local domain.

The message goes out to mailscanner via cgp2ms

4:03:35.73 2 ENQUEUERRULES [29540630] rule(MailScanner) action #0: launching external task: [FILE]/usr/local/etc/cgp2ms
14:03:35.84 2 ENQUEUERRULES [29540630] rule(MailScanner) discarded the message
14:03:35.84 2 ENQUEUER-03([29540630]) discarded by Rules
14:03:35.84 2 DEQUEUER [29540630] SYSTEM()jena&jemma at delivered

Then root at gets the following email, the original
sender of the message gets no failure notice.

Failed to deliver to '<jena>'
