First of all this error does not come from SwiftMailer, but from the 
adapter we made for extensions which don't use the new mail API.

In 4.7 the t3lib_htmlmail library is removed, but some very simple mail 
functions are still present in the core. Because t3lib_htmlmail is 
removed you can't disable the adapter.

If mm_forum doesn't use the new mail API and tries to build its own 
mails the adapter will try hard to disassemble the mail and use each 
component to send the message via the new mail API. Because SwiftMailer 
sticks very much to standards the email addresses need to be valid too.
Therefore we have to validate each email address.

myemailaddress at address.com has the right format, but I suspect that this 
is not the address in the error message ;-)

Report to the authors of mm_forum that they should add support for the 
new mail API (which has been around since TYPO3 4.5 ...).
