I know what you’re thinking: my address has an asterisks next to it.
Is it a typo?
Or an error?
Maybe it’s a bug in Gmail or a way to prevent you from sending spam.
But if your address has no asterisks, chances are your email address is a placeholder.
Here are some of the reasons why:Your email address should be uniqueWhen you use a mobile phone, your phone number should be displayed on your address.
But when you use your email account, the address is just a placeholder that can be changed anytime.
That’s why a placeholder address has to be unique.
An address with multiple digits should be one of the first letters of the last name, the middle initial of the surname or the first and last name.
If you don’t have a unique email address, chances is your email will be seen as spam.
