    Does anyone know or perhaps Apple has a document that shows what characters are allowed in an @icloud.com email address? Specifically, I am wondering if (.) period, (_) underscore, and (-) hyphen are allowed?

    I appreciate any help.
    Thanks

    I think they adhere to RFC 2822...so no periods - that won't work because it's a delimiter. I don't think hyphens are good either. Underscores are okay.

    Periods work. My iCloud email address includes periods.
