Website email verification
I have recently started using an email address that ends .email. When I tried to register with my new address on Virgin and Argos neither will accept this suffix. I have made contact with both companies, Virgin promised to change it for me but never did and Argos claim, ”For now, due to system limitations, the user may not be able to update/register email id’s with more than 4 characters after the dot.
It’s a limitation on our website and we are not able to register the customer’s address.” I can however register for their spam marketing emails with that same address.
My question is why is it so hard for them to change this? These longer extensions have been around for a while and it hardly seems hard to change a little bit of code to accept more characters after the last dot!
