Unplanned Outages - E-List (Lyris) "From" Address Display Name Containing @ Symbol
The E-List service is currently rejecting valid emails that have a "From" address whose display name contains the @ symbol. The vendor is providing a fix that will be applied Sunday, November 18. Workaround: Use the word "at" instead of the @ symbol in display names, or use a descriptive display name, like "Cornell [Purpose] Group." What display names are: In many views of email, you can see two parts. It may look like: "Jane M. Smith" firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com (Jane M. Smith) If it’s a group address, it could be something like: "IT at Cornell Bulletin" firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com (IT at Cornell Bulletin) The display name is the plain language part of the From address, like "Jane M. Smith" or "IT at Cornell Bulletin." It often shows in preview fields for the email. It's usually different from the actual email address used to deliver the message, which always contains an @, like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
