Email query

I am wondering if anyone knows if you leave the "au" off the end of an email would it still go through if all other info is correct or would you get a not delivered response.

I would say no. Our family address ends in & any time senders have omitted the .au the sending has been unsuccessful. I don't recall getting any message letting me know of failure although sender may have received a notification.

thanks Jaxxie88. I did send email for a comp and left the "au" off but didn't receive any notification to say if didn't go through so now wondering who will get it that email.

Would it go through? From a .com to a ? Not usually.

A .com website address could be 'owned' by a completely different entity to the 'owner' of a website address.

The 'owner' of the .com may have a 'catch all' email address for email addresses that don't match any .com email addresses they have set up.

Even if an entity 'owned' both a and .com they might not have email set up on both.

The "au" stands for Australia and in most cases Australian email addresses have .au at the end. A very few don't. .com usually means out of the US.
