3036446 - Add or Replicate an E-Mail Address with Special Character is Giving "E-Mail Address is Invalid"


You are trying to add or synchronize an E-Mail Address with special character but system throws error message "E-Mail Address is Invalid".


  • SAP Business ByDesign 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Personnel Administration Work Center.
  2. Go to the Employees View.
  3. Open any Employee and change from the e-mail with a special character such as ñ.
  4. It will fail saying E-mail Address is invalid.

Or then, trying to replicate the E-Mail Address of an Employee will fail too.


This happens because special characters on E-Mail Address are not supported in Business ByDesign.


Currently this function is not supported. We suggest you to post an Idea on Customer Influence.
