Are email addresses case sensitive? Are web addresses case sensitive?

Web addresses after the domain name portion (as in the deeper links direct to pages or files) can be case sensitive.
Email addresses are not.

Sorry, I didn't mean to mislead you there. I was interpreting address as being the main address of a site, like Techguy.org or Google.ca so I tried a couple and they all worked, even in all caps.

I know when there are long links there can be case sensitive characters in there and should have mentioned that too. Wasn't thinking that far ahead :rolleyes:
