Email/Gmail accounts


QUESTION: Did G mail ever allow its users to set up a four character account ?

Has there ever been a .con ending to an e-mail address ?

ANSWER: Hello Satu-Ann,

thanks for your question!

I am not sure about the first, but I think the answer is "no"
And I am sure about the second, the answer is "no". There never was a .con ending.

Hope this helps!
All the best!

I did an education as a Management Assistant in Informatics, I am using the Opera browser since year 2000 & the M2 email client since 2004. I will do my best to answer also other email related questions and email client settings related, etc. But please no Outlook or Outlook Express questions, since I do not use that. (But if you really want to ask in that field, I will sure do try my best to answer your question nicely and correctly anyway :) ). This includes but is not limited to web based email or whatever comes to your mind.
