> I'm looking for a GMail contact.
> My wife is receiving someone else's emails.
> Specifically she is receiving emails for <first name><middle initial><last
> name>@gmail.com (no dots) when her email address is really <same first
> name>.<same middle initial>.<same last name>@gmail.com (dots).
> I don't know if this is a "feature" or a "bug", but either way, it's
> disquieting my wife. (Unhappy wife = unhappy life.)
> I view this as both non-RFC compliant behavior -and- a potential security
> risk. (Registering a GMail account as <someone><famous>@gmail.com (no
> dot) to capture email for <someone>.<famous>@gmail.com (dot) emails.)
> Please reply or email me directly at gtaylor (at) tnetconsulting (dot) net
> for additional details.
> Thank you and have a nice day.
