Trying to register online for the COVID vaccination in Germany:

the process breaks if you use an email with underscores in the address 🙄

Fucking "Neuland".

@fribbledom I don't recall ever seeing email with underscore. They didn't either, by the looks of it :D


name[.+_]surname@domain is pretty popular over here.

@fribbledom doesn't plus indicate the optional custom label?
Everyone here use period between the names, or some strange contraction like pnovak for Pepa Novák. Or just the names tacked together

@piggo Some mail servers use '+' for a custom label. That's compliant with the email standards but their own choice, the standards don't say anything about it.
