I reported a bug, and asked InfusionSoft to look at fixing it. But now the problem seems worse.
You can no longer do email testing of Follow up Sequences and forms by using gmail addresses with the format email@example.com – ie. gmail addresses with plus signs.
Before it used to leave InfusionSoft with a conflict – but not so serious a conflict that you were prevented from testing. I should have kept my mouth shut – I could still be using this functionality. Now – you can’t use these emails addresses for testing at all. This message appears when you try.
This person’s email address is invalid.
You will not be able to send any emails to this address. They would just bounce back as undeliverable, anyway.
No InfusionSoft, No
What is invalid is your take on what constitutes a valid email address. Please refer to the RFC specification for email addresses. Half of InfusionSoft accepts the plus sign, the other half strips it out, and then reports that the email address would never have worked.
Yes it would, you took the plus sign out. Not me.
