I have a Google Group that i need to add an email address to. It's an invite-only group but when i try to add the address (which is hosted by google apps) it says "Google Groups will not invite 1 user with a restricted address"

What does that mean?

"It isn't possible to add certain types of email addresses to Google
Groups (notably, addresses that start with webmaster[put at-character here], postmaster[put at-character here] or
info[put at-character here]). Because these restrictions are in place to prevent abuse,
there
is no way to bypass them. If you try to add one of these addresses to
a
group, you'll see the message "Google will not add 1 user with a
restricted address."
"
