Error message about invalid email address but my email address definitely is valid ! - When entering my email into an online form

When I try to fill in a form online or register something online which require my email address, after I enter the email address it has a message comes up  saying my email address is invalid and not in the format of @domain.com. I am 100% sure there is no typo error and my email address is definitely valid. It happens on random website, like buying my movie ticket etc. I have no problem to login my hotmail email or use it on facebook etc which requires a password.

It only recently happened and if I type my email address on the word doc and copy and paste back to the colomn and it is ok. Please help me to resolove the problem. Thanks

 

Hi,

If you're copying/pasting the address, make sure there isn't a trailing space on it
e.g. username[at]hotmail.com<space>

Hi,

Either the address is missing the very important @ symbol or it contains an unacceptable character or invalid syntax.

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Email_address#Invalid_email_addresses

Add to those: A space in the address or a trailing dot ( Hotmail.com. )
