Email address limit

Article # 3045230 - Page views: 72


Is there a limit on the email address field in KCS?


RFC822 limits the local part and the mail domain to a maximum of 64 characters each.


Total length of an Internet mail address must not exceed 256 characters (critical especially for embedded X.400 addresses)


Note:   Some of the given restrictions may not apply to special environments. For example, addresses with non-US-ASCII characters or very long SMTP addresses may work in some scenarios. However, it is strongly recommended to keep the RFC 822 addressing specifications to guarantee interoperability.
