Email services not ready for Cyrillic domains, Gmail is the worst.

Yandex, Rambler, Gmail and Mail.ru were tested, An email message in unicode was sent, Only Yandex delivered the message and the other three gave a wrong recipient notice.

Then an email message was sent to the same four providers, this time in punycode, All except Gmail worked when sending in punycode (xn--)

Re: Email services not ready for Cyrillic domains, Gmail is the worst.

Can you give a bit more specific translation for those of us who can't read the original article?

I use gmail to send from and receive to IDN domains using punycode for the email addresses. We are talking about the To: and From: addresses no? b/c unicode in the other parts of email messages have not been a problem since the early days of web-based email apps.

Re: Email services not ready for Cyrillic domains, Gmail is the worst.

The article claims it was impossible to send from gmail, neither using unicode or punycode.

I tried sending to mailtest@xn--e1afmkfd.xn--80akhbyknj4f (in unicode also)

And in both cases got: The email address "mailtest@xn--e1afmkfd.xn--80akhbyknj4f" is not recognized. Please fix it and try again.

Gmail version possibly?

Great article. That will put the pressure on them. Especially Google.

WTF doing Google? I can't believe that his mail client is so old!

Oops!

Well, if they don't work in Unicode, then they are all as bad as each other!

Re: Email services not ready for Cyrillic domains, Gmail is the worst.

Get ready for this:

Your email is being returned and/or marked as spam because the to and/or from addresses contains Latin character(s).
Only Kana/Kanji character (only full width) email addresses are supported on this server. Thank you for your understanding.
