What is Email address definition ?

An email address is a chain of characters allowing the routing of an electronic message on the Internet network. It is formed of a username and a domain name which are separated by the at sign (@).


In the process of transporting email messages, the right part of the address is first used to transfer the message to the email server managing the domain. Once at the server level, this later transfers the message to the recipient according to the left part of the address.
