According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Email_address the character is valid in the local part of an address according to RFC 2822. However, WCAG Checkpoint 14.1 would be appropriate if the email address will be rendered on the page at any time:

14.1 Use the clearest and simplest language appropriate for a site's content. [Priority 1]
http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/#gl-facilitate-comprehension

Again, if it will be visible checkpoint 13.1 also applies:

13.1 Clearly identify the target of each link. [Priority 2]
Link text should be meaningful enough to make sense when read out of context
