Trouble sending INotes email with "&" in Display Name

If our users send an email to a valid address through INotes with an "&" in the display name, such as:

"kevin & pam" <kwp@myaddress.com>

It returns an error, and seems to try and send it to two people. The example above is translated to:

"kevin &amp; pam" <kwp@myaddress.com>

and is seen as two addresses, one of which the address book cannot find and returns an error. This doesn't happen when using the Notes Client, only DWA. How can I keep INotes from Translating the "&" in the display name to "&amp;"

Thanks!
