I tried through admin and also through the site at creating an account for one of our existing customers and I keep getting "Invalid Email Address" now I know that its not an invalid email and that the domain is operational and so what is happening??

I really need to get this customers account up and running, does anyone have any ideas?

There is an old thread on this but no satisfactory answer to my issue.

Thanks

I just got the same thing. The email address is valid. The domain resolves. It's obviously a bug on Shopify's part.

I have the same problem with invalid email for new customers, with user accounts deactivated.

I'm starting to wonder if we've lost sales because of potential customers running into this issue when they try to enter their email address.

I am definately wondering that, because I only stumbled on this by chance today!! #BLOODYANNOYED

Just out of interest what themes are you guys using? I'm on Brooklyn.

Minimal here.

 

As a test I went through the checkout process all the way up till payment (but didn't do the payment) and it took the address there that it considered invalid when I tried to create a customer account from the admin page. I don't think it's stopped anyone from ordering but I can't be sure.

That is some piece of mind at least I'll run the same test on our store to see. It is obviously a common problem as the people above have exactly the same issue, for me it is imperative I get it fixed because our retailers on our trade site are required to create an account before they order. :-/

There are some SMTP issues with the domain for that email address. Perhaps Shopify is doing SMTP checks and that's why it's failing.
