Anything after %3C (>) in a query string value is being ignored by parse_str().

For instance, given the request:

$_GET['to'] is "me " instead of "me <>"

Reproduce code:
$query= "to=".urlencode("me <>");
print $to;

Expected result:
me <>

Actual result:

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

It works fine, your browser simply treating <email> as HTML tag and not showing it. If you view the HTML source you'll see all of the text.
