    not sure if it is ok to respond to this or if I should open a new discussion. How would something like this work with email addresses? Sometimes people will use a + at the end of their email address to filter mail (ie: We can't really use your hidden field trick for this and it's crucial that  we correct the correct email. Have there been any process changes on this?

    Mike- I am specifically talking about encoding the plus sign.

    According to this issue:

    See the following example (note that the "+" turns into a space):{}

    Thank you for your updated.

    Unfortunately, we do not have any solution at this time. I have attached a ticket to this thread and forwarded it to our Development Team to see if we can do anything about this.

    We will let you know if we have any updates.
