Sending e-mail to name with a quote

Is there a way to send SMTP mail to joe.o'boy@ipaper.com?

 

OpenVMS 8.4/TCPIP 5.7 eco 4.

 

I've tried adding more quotes or even using smtp%"name" but nothing seems to work,

>to avoid confusion with a quotation mark, we often call that apostrophe an apostrophe.

 

Or with computer languages, a single quote vs double quote.

Not quite.  The C/C++ Standards have defined it as a single quote and double quote.

In that context there is no such thing as quotation marks or apostrophes.

Similarly for the Posix shell, scummy C shell and other shells.

 

>The apostrophe in question here is used as an apostrophe

 

True.
