What’s the difference between a username and an email address?

The difference is much the same as between your name and address. The username tells who you are; the email address tells who and where you are. A username is your unique identifier for a domain: who you are. An email address is username@domain: who and where you are. Let's say your username is johndoe. That is the name by which our servers recognize you. All that’s needed is the username (and the password to confirm that it is indeed you), because you are directly connected to your ISP's server. Usernames are unique to a domain. There will only be one johndoe registered with your ISP. If your username is johndoe, your email address will be, for example,  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Email requires both a recipient and a location. When people send you email, their mail servers look at the domain (hargray.com in this case) and send the email to the hargray.com mail server. From there, our mail server puts it in your mailbox because it has your username on it.
