The dot-at-the-end syntax is valid for DNS (host) names, but it's not
valid SMTP address syntax to add a dot at the end of an email address
(among other places).

I would agree that the best way around this problem is to use
blah at mail.ai, or whatever. Many people with hosts or subdomains names
"ai" will have problems sending mails to you otherwise.

Personally, I'd use the ai.ai.ai domain.  ;-)
