Subject: [Y-Mail] Dot Address Effects Observed - Interesting?
I noticed today that emails sent to my dot profile with the wrong
Yahoo! domain are sometimes (depending on the domain) successfully
delivered to my Yahoo.com account but that emails sent to my base
userid with the wrong Yahoo! domain are never successfully delivered
to my Yahoo.com account.
To clarify ...
I have the following addresses:
firstname.lastname@... (an alias for the above address)
Emails sent to my baseuserid address but with the wrong domain name
(e.g., baseuserid@..., baseuserid@..., etc.) are
never successfully delivered to baseuserid@.... This is what
However, emails sent to my firstname.lastname address but with the
wrong domain (e.g., firstname.lastname@...,
firstname.lastname@...) are delivered successfully to my
firstname.lastname@... address. This is a bit surprising.
And the success is not across the board for all international Yahoo!
domains. It works for Yahoo.com.ar and Yahoo.com.mx but not for
Yahoo.co.uk and Yahoo.com.au. I haven't tested any other domains
This is not terribly important and perhaps not all that interesting
for most members here but I thought some members might find it
interesting. In effect dot address Yahoo.com users have at least
two new email addresses available to them. Perhaps not for long
though. I would expect Yahoo! Argentina and Yahoo! Mexico to fix
their email address holes eventually.
