    The local part is allowed to be case-sensitive. It just almost always isn't.

    Even the domain part has to be capitalized? 😆

    In that case, a good way of lightly trolling that person would be to end up using this address:

    @ethernetzero the subaddress is my favorite to use when I sign up so I can track who is selling or losing my data. But I'm noticing more and more services blocking the "+"

    @sylar182 Yeah, sometimes it catches me off guard and I get a bit pissed off about it, especially when the error message says that my email address is not valid.

    I never knew about that.
    I aways assumed it is case sensitive.

    (and everybody who asked me for my email told me to check the size of the letters as well...)
