Unfortunately the "marketing+" bit at the start of the email address is

as though the instructions say to send an email to

normally, clicking the link should work. :-) With GMail, it is a known bug
that it doesn't work, but that's GMail's fault. + addresses are in the RFC

Gmail surely doesn't have any problem with "+" addresses- I myself
make big use of those...
clicking the mail-address/automatically created link does work as
well, so I absolutely see no problem with gmail in this regard.


Hi :)
Ok, so it seems to be another problem that some people do have and some people 
don't.  I have noticed that Windows users seem to have the problem and i have 
seen it in Ubuntu.  Perhaps it is just Yahoo misbehaving again.  I have written 
to Yahoo "customer support" a number of times about various issues but have 
never heard back.  There is a user forum but their answers are along the lines 
the lines of "Look, ponies".  I was hoping their new beta testing might accept 
user-input or just be fixed but sadly not.  Still they are very popular and used 
by a LOT of people so we need to be able to work with them in some way rather 
than blaming users for the faults created by organisations.

Tom :)
