django-admin tells me this is not valid email address when entering it into an email field, but it is! there is a provider gmx (very popular in germany) where you can register an email-adress like this (the real address is not abc.@ but something different i can't tell because it's the address of a friend of mine).

As defined in RFC 5322, an email address can't end with a dot. So the above email address is not valid, regardless of what the provider does. In case you need to accept email addresses like that, you can always subclass EmailField.
