E-mail addresses are (somewhat unique -- not getting into aliases,
forwards, and such) e-mail delivery points, they are not a unique
index of PEOPLE. You point out below that a single person can have
multiple addresses. I also know several families where the entire
family shares one address.
No -- email addresses are unique.
Don't confuse the issue by looking at how many people can use a
single email address, but rather that each email address IS unique
that many people can use.
Keep in mind that on the right side of the @ is the domain name,
which is absolutely unique -- and on the left side of the @ only one
mail box per specific string is allowed. While I can have
"t...@sperling.com" and "t...@sperling" dump into one account, there
is still only one account.
The process has to be that way or this email thing would not work.
