Is my e-mail address okay? - Page 2Register Today!
- Sep 1, '12 by MeriwhenQuote from MiikiTry registering "miikismith" w/o the period as a Gmail name. It won't be available.I've held an "firstname.lastname@example.org" address for a long time. An email sent to 'email@example.com' will not reach my inbox.
Gmail does ignore the period...I get tons of spam on one of my user accounts because of that. Not sure if other e-mail services do the same though.

I was thoroughly wrong.
It makes me think now. You can have a large combination of email addresses that deliver to the same account based on where and how many periods you place. I can definitely think of some misuse there.
- Sep 3, '12 by JoryNumbers that are included in an email address are not what HR is talking about when you hear about "unprofessional email addresses". I use two email address, one for professional/business purposes and one for when I need to register for shipping websites, etc. I don't have RN in my name at all because I don't want everyone to know I'm an RN, especially when I'm responding to sales on Craig's List, etc.
