Email Re-direct

I'm trying to set up a redirect. My plus net email address to my dot mac address, via the web interface.
I keep gettingt the following error:

The name you have chosen contains one or more illegal characters. Spaces (whitespace) are not allowed. Allowed characters are: letters, numbers, and ".@!_-" .

The addresses I'm using are perfectly good, so any suggestions?

Mac. OS 10.4.5. Safari and Firefox

Have you cut n pasted your email address from another source? You may have a leading or trailing blank space included.

Weird.
Despite the error message the re direct appears to be working.
Ah well. Just another website to add to the list of those that don't work properly in a modern standards compliant web browser Wink

With regards to the redirect creation page, you just have to put in the bit before the @ symbol for the address you want to redirect everything from. Putting the full address in will cause a message such as the one you experienced,.

Aha!
That works.
Maybe a slight alteration to the words on that page?

Thank you.
