BT Community fails to recognise domains with the "-" character

  • Hi.

I have a regular MyBT account which uses my email domain stewart@xxxx-yyyy.co.uk with no issues.

I tried changing my BT Community email address to match and no verification message was received. I then tried a gmail address which worked.

The verification email never arrived with my ISP (no junk or spam filters in use).

I have had this issue with a few companies including ebay! Can someone check the community email system as it should allow for the  "-" character in an email domain when checking the validity of characters. As mentioned, the MyBT systems all work OK and I receive account emails, product info etc with no issues.

I am sure that I cannot be alone in experiencing this?

Many thanks .

Stewart

You really need to remove your email address from a public forum, everyone here are customers, only the moderation team are employees.
If required you'd be contacted by private message, then sharing your email address would be safe.

Hi @stewartv welcome to the community and thanks for posting, I'm sorry to read about the problems you had using your email address that contained a hyphen when registering for the community. I'll raise this with the community manager when he's back in the office tomorrow.
