I'm on the non classic interface (the standard gui) I tried to send an email to

[email protected].

The email address is valid and I'm able to send to it via another client or the older interface, but with the standard gui, I get the message

Invalid Address:

We cannot find a match for this email address:

[email protected].

Please use an email address that looks like [email protected] or a nickname or a distribution list name from your Yahoo! contacts.

Does anybody know how I can send the email to that email address with the standard Yahoo! mail GUI, and without getting that error message?


1 Answer 1


You have a period at the end of the email address

[email protected].

It should be [email protected] (no period)

Period makes the email address highlighted in red

Removing the period gets me a reply from the Apache Digest with the subject

confirm subscribe to [email protected]
