This is a potentially complex issue to deal with, as some characters have special meanings, handling, and limitations on how/where they can be used within the local-part.


A good page that itemizes what is allowed/disallowed and why some of the items (like the ampersand you've used as your example) may be a bad idea to allow can be found here:

This will need further consideration, review, and further input/voting from customers to gauge its value.
