Oh, I see. The address can be either:
rleee at verizon.net
Rusty <rleee at verizon.net>
"Rusty James" <rleee at verizon.net>

What I recommend is that in your address book, when editing your
contacts, the "Email Address" field only contain the email address
(rleee at verizon.net), not the name (Rusty). "Rusty" must go in the
Display Name, First Name, Last Name or nickname field.

Claws Mail will put both display name (if set) and address in the To:
field of the compose window, at the end, using this form:
"display name" <address>
