This has been bothering me for a good while, but I noticed when my Mom is emailing my Aunt, she is capitalizing my Aunt’s name in the email address. Are email addresses case-sensitive, and does this mean my Aunt will not receive the email?
Or are we just being ignored for sending Lego Star Wars movies?
Sorry to say, your lovely movies are most likely being ignored. Although email providers say anything before the “@” symbol is case-sensitive, typically addresses are not because of the confusion this would cause between users. This means if you needed to email the Geek at Technology by Design, it can be assumed that both GEEK@tbyd.ca and firstname.lastname@example.org would send to the same place.
However, when you are logging into your own account, the username associated with your email will be very case-sensitive.
