    Hi Guys

     

    After wondering why an email address written in UPPERCASE would not work I tried using lowecase, unfortunately a lot of our customers still insist in typing in UPPERCASE for everything

     

    Is there a way to accept UPPERCASE entries within the email address text box

     

    Many thanks

     

    Dave

    I believe email addresses are case insensitive so it wouldn't matter how you type them.

    Hi Aytekin

    email addresses (world-wide) are not case sensitive, all email addresses can be typed in UPPERCASE, lowercase or a MiXtUre Of BoTh, all will reach the recepient

    However if a or any UPPERCASE letter is used in the JotForm email address it is regected

    My form is: http://www.jotform.com/form/1474842523

    I have had to input "only use lowercase" in the text box hint

    Please do try it and enter an UPPERCASE email address and it will fail with

    "Enter a valid e-mail address"
