strange email syntax issue with ActionMailer

I am getting a peculiar syntax error with when setting the from email
address in an ActionMailer class, like this:

from 'Email <info@email.com>'

This is a valid email address as shown on
http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActionMailer/Base.html#M001561 (see
bbc email).

But I am receiving this error:

Net::SMTPSyntaxError (501 Syntax error in parameters or arguments
):
  /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/smtp.rb:680:in `check_response'
  /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/smtp.rb:653:in `getok'
  /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/smtp.rb:631:in `mailfrom'
  /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/smtp.rb:544:in `send0'
  /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/smtp.rb:472:in `sendmail'
  /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/smtp.rb:379:in `start'

The email sends file when it is:
from '<info@email.com>'

But the mail server I'm using requires the text before it.

I have no idea what is going on. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Known issue with rails 2.3.3 & 2.3.4.

There is a workaround listed in the thread.

I'm showing my retardedness again!

From email can't not have description before the email address. To, cc
and bcc can. ActionMailer rdoc where description(description
<e@email.com>) was used, was in bcc.
