Umlaut in e-mail import

When importing subscriber lists (via Subscriber Import, NOT via API), I have difficulty to import addresses with umlaut characters. Umlaut in the Name or other fields work fine. Just in e-mail addresses they are not accepted. The CSV file I'm importing is in UTF-8 with BOM (this is why the umlaut in other fields work). I know that generally it's not a good idea to use umlaut in e-mail addresses, there are many things that can go wrong with these. On the other hand, when I receive a list from one of my clients for import in Campaign Monitor, I will have to use them somehow.
