    Hi sorry if this is a stupid question but are email addresses case sensitive?

    I am thinking of the situation where you fill in a form that says filling in in capitals or you want the address to be written clearly.

    I have an icloud address and also a personal domain through google apps.

    Is it okay to use capitals or does it create problems?

    Many thanks

    You can use capitals, but it really won't matter. For instance if I typed my email as Drew@me.com it would be no different than if I typed drew@me.com.

    BTW that's not my email, just an example.
