"The email address format is invalid."
« on: December 04, 2017, 09:29:03 AM »
I am trying to install/setup SMF through my account with Network Solutions.  I am prompted to create a username, password, and email to generate the forum.  I keep getting the error "The email address format is invalid." My email address ends in the domain @barrencounty.democrat.  While not your typical .com, .org. or .net - it IS a valid domain and email address.  How can I complete installation?  I do not want to create a GMAIL account and redirect.  I would expect a valid email address to work.  Thanks in advance for any help.
