Search Requirements

For an email object to be sufficient for a search, it must contain a valid email address or an MD5 hash of a valid email address.

MD5 Calculation Guidelines

When sending an MD5 hash of an email address, we recommend normalizing the email before calculating the hash:

  • The entire email should be in lowercase.
  • If the username contains a plus (+) character, remove it and any trailing character (so [email protected] will become [email protected]).
  • For Gmail addresses only:
    • If the email domain ends with "googlemail.com", replace this with "gmail.com".
    • Remove any dots in the username.
