Hi
My email address is andrew.john.xxxxx@xxxxxxx (I've put xxxx in so not to divulge my true address).
Unfortunately the site seems to remove the full stops before storing the address.
I've re-entered my correct email address (with the full stops), via the Control Panel, but the full stops get removed.
Has anyone else got this problem?
Obviously I don't receive emails when someone responds to my posts.
Thanks

Hi Andrew,

That is not a problem I have come across before. I have tried editing your profile as a moderator and it will not let me insert the full stops either so I will ask the tech guy to have a look and see what is going on.

Regards

Hi Walter.
Strangely I did receive an email informing me of your message above.
So, my correct email must be held in the system somewhere.
Thanks for the prompt reply.
Cheers
Andrew

Hi, Andrew!

I just sent you two emails:  one with full stops and one without.  Please let me know if you get both or either of the two.

Funnily enough I've just noticed the same issue, did you ever get anywhere with this?

Hi Dave
The system apears to hold the email address without full stops.
Apart from that all functionality appears to work.
Emails get sent to my gmail account even without full stops in the address.
I can only assume that full stops in email addresses are redundant.
To check - just email youself without full stops in your sendto address. If you get the email, then it's not a problem.
Cheers
Andrew

Not a general thing. If full stops are left out e.g. bodrighywood@bodrighcouk the server will reject, at least my server does.

Pete:  I believe Andrew meant the the full stops to the left of the "@" are redundant.  The full stops to the right of the "@" are most definitely necessary.

Hi Claude
Thank you for correcting my previous reply. You are absolutely correct. I should have been more specific :-(
Cheers
