So you are saying that using \` instead of \< would be better?  (I
used \< because I thought about addresses like
<address@hidden>, with the brackets intact.)

Well, do you see any reason that this would be relevant to the case
in point?  mail-utils.el doesn't surround regular expressions with \<
and \>, it only does that with usernames, which aren't regexps.
