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".

... also breaks if you use a plus sign in the address.

Let's see how many more perfectly valid characters I can find.

@fribbledom how about periods or {braces] in the local-part?
quoted with spaces?
leading or trailing parenthesised (comments) in the local-part?


@FiXato @fribbledom Ah I see somebody who read the RFC? 😉

@lx someone who has slapped various sites with the RFC as well as the Wikipedia page because I couldn't use my e-mail address, most commonly with plus-filtering. :)
