Either my name, my password or my soul is invalid – but which?

Re: Gmail addresses with dots

Could be worse.

One place I worked at used

<firstname>.<lastname>@<country>.<division>.<companyname>.com

Luckily, in my case <country> was just uk, but any number of services couldn't cope with the total length of the string, and many more borked at the dots. It's annoying to find there isn't room in the box to type the whole email address.

Kept the spam down though.
