An email address is a unique identifier that enables an individual or organization to send and receive electronic messages, files, and other digital content over the internet. It consists of two main components – the local-part, which identifies the user or mailbox, and the domain name, which identifies the email provider or service.

For example, in the email address ““, “johnsmith” is the local-part, and “” is the domain name. This means that the email address is associated with a user named John Smith, who has an email account with the Gmail service.
