Problem Description: Trying to send an email with cfmail using an email address containing a foreign character throws an error.

Steps to Reproduce: Run this code:
<cfmail to="jacó" from="jacó" subject="Test international characters">Test international characters</cfmail>

Actual Result: This error:
Attribute validation error for tag CFMAIL.
The value of the attribute to, which is currently jacó, is invalid. 

Expected Result: Email is sent.

Any Workarounds: None that I know of. I should note that if the email with special characters is in the FROM attribute, the message sends fine.
