I have an email that it stuck in my queue and is causing other emails for this account to be rejected with a 456. The errors in the maillog look like this:

I assume the problem is the funky from address, but isn't it legal if it's quoted like that? Is there a way to force the message through, or am I going to have to manually cancel the message?

The funky from address merely causes the real problem: it looks like you have a maildrop recipe running in this mailbox, and it's barfing trying to process this message. It problem takes the sender's address and uses it in an external command, without quoting it properly.

Look at your maildrop recipe.
