Emailaddresses that contain '.'s

  Asked By: Corey    Date: Aug 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 803

I just installed Sharepoint Portal Server beta 2, but when trying to
create a portal I must enter an administrative emailaddress.

I noticed that only addresses that do not contain a '.' Before the '@'
are accepted...

Does anyone know a workaround, because we have aabout 24000 users all
with emailaddresses that contain '.'s (not that all of them will be
using sharepoint, but still).

I believe that is now a well-known issue for the beta2 software. I am
not sure if there is a work around for it. I have heard it stated that
it will be fixed on the release.

There is no known workaround.

Well, other than using an alias that doesn't have a "." in the username.

I have also contacted Microsoft on this and it is a problem with the Beta
version and will be fixed with the Release of SharePoint. However just one more
piece of information. Microsoft is not planning on having RC versions of
SharePoint the next publicly version will be the released version.
