Looks like a misconfigured dns record.  Email addresses with dots in them need a unique MX record,  if I recall correctly.  liases will not do. ... depending on the MTA.  I run into this a lot where I try to enter emails into a database,  and it comes back "invalid",  because of the disallowed characters on the syste (admins too lazy to fix the bug or problem).  I'm not sure what TA Godaddy uses.  I'. used to sendmail and postfix,  but prefer sendmail,  for various reasons.


Make sure there is an X record entry for each canonical as well as fully qualified domain name in the zone files.


Other than that,  wacth for tyops (   🙂    )

Not sure what MTA Godaddy uses....    



Yes,  typos can be a problem,  esp late or early,  on a laptop with no sleep for a few daze


check everything for syntax,  too.  Just one misplaced dot can screw things up.
