Re: firstname.lastname at gmail

That is correct; either the person himself gives the incorrect email address, or the shopman typed it in wrong, or friends and family typed it wrong, simply assuming that their loved one has the good email address instead of the joe.smith546 that they actually had to settle for.

It is not Gmail's fault; they are simply so large that it happens with them more often.
