What’s your site title in the settings? Does it contain any non-standard characters? Set a different title made up of plain ASCII characters (latin alphabet) as the email sender field in the email site title setting and send yourself a test mail (through Discourse, not via the command line script).

it was

GreedGamer:Gaming Community

Now i changed it to

GreedGamer Gaming Community

Without " : "

@neil I would like protection for this implemented on the email side (strip the problem chars). This is support requests waiting to happen.

I can’t find a readable spec on what characters are allowed in that part of the from and reply-to fields. It’s probably in the RFC doc, but I can’t parse it. So far it has been the colon : causing the problem, so I’ll start by stripping that and a few other obvious ones.
