The World’s Longest Active Email Address

The World’s Longest Active Email Address

Do you know what the longest active e-mail address in the world to date is?
You probably know Peter Craig who has a 345-character e-mail address. His full email address is:

contact-admin-hello-webmaster-info-services-peter-crazy-but-oh-so[email protected]please-try-to.send-me-an-email-if-you-can-possibly-begin-to-remember-this-coz.this-is-the-longest-email-address-known-to-man-but-to-be-honest.this-is-such-a-stupidly-long-sub-domain-it-could-go-on-forever.pacraig.com

But wait! Peter Craig’s record has already been broken. The World’s Longest Email Address according to URDB.org now belongs to Zachary Reidell.

World’s Longest Email Address

His full email address is:

hi-this-is-the-longest-email-in-the-world-and-is-much-superior-to-contact-admin-hello-webmaster-info-services-peter-crazy-but-oh-so-ubber-cool-english-alphabet-loverer-abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz-at-please-try-to.send-me-an-email-if-you-can-possibly-begin-to-remember-this-coz.this-is-the-longest-email-address-known-to-man-but-to-be-honest[email protected]zchr.org

That’s composed of 411 characters! Funny I only got 28 characters on my email; damn, his is quite longer. You might be thinking how Reidell did the stuff? From his blog post:

I did this withNearlyFreeSpeech.NET email forwarding, and Gmail. To achive the record, I appended a few words to the previous record, and added @zchr.org to the end of it. This works because the forwarding service forwards every single email I get, regardless of the text before the @zchr.org.

That’s pretty interesting, isn’t it? How about you? How long is your email address?
