Bulk Activites - Add Contact - Value is not a valid email

We are testing the Add Contact API via bulk activities using the .net CTCT wrapper and have found that the process will error out on an email like this test@test.ca3.  But, you can enter that address through the Constant Contact UI.  

 

Why is that email allowed in through the UI and not via the upload batch?

 

Is there a way to stop the system from trying validate each email on the way in?

I found details on the validation in this post http://community.constantcontact.com/t5/Developer-Support-ask-questions/Complex-email-addresses-are-....  Are thses still current.  I seem to have addresses being rejected that would pass these rules.

 

As well, I was able to import the addresses that did fail via the ui and the imorting of a CSV. 

 

Some information on this would be appreciated.
