Default Apostrophe in e-mail name

I want to send an e-mail to someone whose address contains his last name,
O'Leary. The e-mail address is of the form . He
e-mails me so the name but be valid but Mail won't even attempt to send if I
use his address. I think the problem might be his using the apostrophe. Any
thoughts on how to trick Mail to allow me to e-mail him?

Thanks,
Mark
