I don't think you can get domains with @ in them.

BlueSky is correct -- you can't.

You can use "at" of course.

But do be careful - it could change the meaning of your URL. A lot of words end in "sh". You don't want that followed by an "at".

Don't do a Powergen. The UK electricity company opened an Italian "branch" and setup this site: [powergenitalia.com...]

I wonder if any heads rolled as a result of that one :-)

Intersting. Better to have an email with an @ in it :-)
