How Do You Underscore In An Email Address?

If you need to place an underscore while typing an email contact address, you should hold the shift button down and then press the button on the right of the zero buttons, this will type an underscore.  An email address identifies an email box to which email messages are delivered. An example format of an email address is [email protected] which is read as Lewis at example dot net. Many earlier email systems used different address formats.

Transport of email across the Internet uses the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), which is defined in Internet standards RFC 5321 and RFC 5322, while mailboxes are most often accessed with the Post Office Protocol (POP) and the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP).

Email addresses, such as [email protected], have two parts. The part before the @ sign is the local-part of the address, often the username of the recipient (jsmith), and the part after the @ sign is a domain name to which the email message will be sent (

An SMTP server looks up the domain name using the Domain Name System, which is a distributed database. A server queries the DNS for any mail exchanger records (MX records) to find the host name of a designated mail transfer agent (MTA) for that address. That way, the organization holding the delegation for a given domain - the mailbox provider - can define which are the target hosts for all email destined to its domain. The mail exchanger does not need to be located in the domain of the destination mail box; it must simply accept mail for the domain. The target hosts are configured with a mechanism to deliver mail to all destination mail boxes. The local-part of an address is defined to be opaque to intermediate mail relay systems except the final mailbox host. For example, it must not be assumed to be case-insensitive.

Multiple email addresses may point to the same mailbox. Conversely, a single email address may be an alias and have a distribution function to many mailboxes. Email aliases, electronic mailing lists, sub-addressing, and catch-all addresses, the latter being mailboxes that receive messages irrespectively of the local part, are common patterns for achieving such results.

The addresses found in the header fields of an email message are not the ones used by SMTP servers to deliver the message. Servers use the so-called message envelope to route mail. While envelope and header addresses may be equal, forged email addresses are often seen in spam, phishing, and many other internet-based scams. This has led to several initiatives which aim to make such forgeries easier to spot.

Are you trying to say that you want to Underscore any alphabet in E-mail address at time of creating or typing?
By Default, You cannot create an Underscored E-mail Address, neither you can place "Underscore" under and other word. Underscore is a separate character and uses separate space on document.
However, you can Underline an E-mail when typing it but you won't be able to Underline it.
To Put an Underscore, Press Shift and - button(- button is above P character key) at same time and Underscore "_" will appear.

Are you asking of underscoring words during creating E-mail or when typing in any E-mail address.
In both cases, sorry to say, but you cannot out underscore under a word
either during creating or typing an existing E-mail. But, as an
alternative you can Underline a word or whole E-mail that would look
same as underscore could do.

The average office worker receives about 80 letters a day. With such volumes, there is a possibility of missing some important messages. You need to adhere to some rules of corporate correspondence, under which your letter will definitely not be lost and will not cause a negative reaction. You can also read the article on how to write email like a boss. Email is the ideal communication tool within a company.

Your question is not clear. There is no underscore mentioned in this email address. Underscore is a small dash (_). Its key is above letter "p" on keyboard. Press shift button, hold it on, and then press the underscore button. It will be like this . [email protected] >>> I hope I have answered your question.

When I had XP emails automatically turned blue and underscored.  I don't know how it did that. You could click on it and it would automatically take you to the designated email.  On updated Microsoft program it doesn't work.

Well, if you want to underscore an email address then simply follow these instructions. On your keyboard in the upside you have number like 1234567890. Immediately after 0 you have a sign like -. When you want to put an underscore you have to just press the shift button and this sign. For example, [email protected]

If you have a QWERTY keyboard, that is a keyboard where the first six keys on top row of letters from left to right are labelled "Q W E R T Y", then if you follow that line of keys to the end, the last letter key in that row should be "P".  The key to the above right of this should have a longer dash above a shorter dash.  The longer dash at the top represents the underscore and the shorter dash underneath represents the hyphen.  You type in the underscore by holding the shift key (above the Ctrl key to the bottom left of the keyboard) while depressing the hyphen/underscore key.

I hope this is of help.

There is no underscore icon in the above email address that you have given. The underscore icon is represented as "_". It is the most common feature of an email address and most of the people use it. The email address, [email protected], features the underscore sign.

If you want to underline an Email at time of its creation then it won't be possible.
You can underline an E-mail address by using Underline option e.g., abc @ xyz .com, But by this option you can underline E-mail in forms etc but not at time of creating it or logging in.
You can use "underscore sign i.e., _" to use in E-mail e.g., abc_def @
