Can We Use An Ampersand In An Email Address?

(Doc ID 1563511.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 15, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Delegated Administrator - Version 6.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

With Delegated Admin 6.4, when attempting to create a user with an ampersand (&) in the email address, a pop-up window is shown stating 'Invalid Email Address':

 

 

The only special character used was the ampersand (&) in the email address. For example:  abc&def@example.com

If we would change the Messaging Server option, LDAP_UID_INVALID_CHARS, as described on the wiki page of Valid Message Store UIDs and Folder Names, would that make the ampersand accepted in an email address with Delegated Admin 6.4?
