Are email addresses case sensitive?
Like hotmail for example.
If I send an email to SusieBrown@hotmail.com, then send the same email to email@example.com, will she get the email twice?
No, they aren’t. For example, if you register a new email account on hotmail.com and want your new email to be NicholeAnderson@hotmail.com, and someone else already has an email called firstname.lastname@example.org, you are not allowed to have that email, because in actuality, it’s the same email.
Why if email addresses are case sensitive do you have to go upper case for the @ sign?
Just wondering really. I think it would be interesting to know if anyone does know. Thanx in advance.
I understand the fact that the @ is at the top of the button and you have to go uppercase but surely if email addys are designed to be case sensitive this funny little a in a circle is breaking the rules a bit he he!
Email addresses are NOT case sensitive, the reason that it is above the number 2 key (in my region) is because the keyboard layout was set before e-mail existed and the wide use of the @ (at symbol)
are email addresses case sensitive?
i sent a email to my school counsler and she hasn’t replied. i rechecked our school website to make sure i had the right email, and it turns out the the first letters of her first and last name are captilized. (ex. BobSmith@yahoo.com) Does this really make a difference? I dont want to resend the email if she already got it.
Nope it doesn’t make a difference, they will have gotten the email.
Are google mail/gmail email addresses case sensitive?
for example would EXAMPLE@GMAIL.COM, email@example.com, EXAMPLE@gmail.com
all get to the same recipient?
Google Mail/Gmail addresses are not case-sensitive. If you were to send an e-mail to ExaMPlE@GmAiL.com, the recipient with the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org would receive it.
Hope this helps!
