How to shorten my long email address?

The question I have is: Does "@ and carrier/user" have to be included in an email address?  In example could johnsmith@cablecompany.com be shortened to johnsmith.com. I have a long email and am trying to shorten it.

Hello @billj,

 

Unfortunately you can not, you always have to have your @domain.com (in your example @cablecompany.com). The only way to shorten your email would be shorten the first bit of the email. E.G:

john@cablecompany.com

 

This can be done by registering a new email, as seen below:

I hope this helps,

Feel free to ask any other questions! 🙂

Thank you HarryBrand. I thought that would be the answer, but thought I'd ask and be sure.
