    Alex which is what ends up making this category so interesting to stretch - because my previous attempt at 345 did in fact send and receive and so did Zac's (although haven't tried for some time). There are a range of technical hurdles with DNS, email limits, server limits, forwarding and set up and the client(s) used to send/receive as webmail and program clients often trip over the address when it gets too long as usually there's no need for such an arduously lengthed address.

    I have to dispute this, as the article below states that e-mail addresses cannot extend beyond 256 characters. Zachary, can you please use this e-mail to send a message to me? My email is acsteelersfanyahoo.com. Here is the article: http://email.about.com/od/emailbehindthescenes/f/address_length.htm

    I switched email providers recently, and now I can't accept emails to that address anymore! Oh well, I was kinda getting sick of so many messages.

    The e-mail is active and can be sent to and responded from - Microsoft Outlook cannot handle the email but it works sending from gmail, unsure of any other providers but it's certainly legit, albeit a forwarder it still is retrievable.

    Nice job Zach, now expect a barrage of e-mails and the automatic assumption that if your email address is so long, you're lacking elsewhere - at least that's the majority of mail I got :)

    Not when you're on the road and you wan't to quickly access your mail on your phone or library, you're sitting there for 5 minutes entering the email address and password... and yes John Ellis, the site is active but just redirects to my site at http://pacraig.com

    It's strange actually, some mail programs don't accept the address, it cuts it off short (ie Outlook doesn't work)

    Yes trust me Brian, the password itself is probably a world record. But it does take a little while to log in, not too practical when you're in a hurry.
