As a new HubSpot user for a brand-new startup, I've reading a lot of the how-to content available. However I can't (easily) download many of the examples because hubspot doesn't think my email is valid. This happens on multiple "Download Now" calls to action buttons.
Press "Download Now"
Enter valid First, Last names ("Shane" and "Curcuru")
Enter my email address: "firstname.lastname@example.org"
Press "Download Now" (or tab out of the field to force validation
BUG: it reports the email is invalid, and suggests I might have meant "email@example.com"
This consistently fails with the above email address, which is a Google Workplace alias provided for my actual Google Workplace email address. Using a well-known provider's alias like this should be valid; also using .buzz TLD should be valid.
This seems to happen with this hubspot control:
<div class="input" data-reactid=".hbspt-forms-2.1:$0.1:$email.$email"><input id="email-f3507b84-ad3e-4df5-97a5-72550ac2860c_4314" class="hs-input" type="email" name="email" required="" placeholder="" value="firstname.lastname@example.org" autocomplete="email" data-reactid=".hbspt-forms-2.1:$0.1:$email.$email.0" inputmode="email"></div>
And is probably in https://js.hsleadflows.net/leadflows.js or whatever underlying domain name validation that's used.
Is this expected behavior for some reason, or an actual bug?

@ShaneCurcuru curiously, it works if you use something other than newsletter.
what would happen if you did email@example.com?
Genuine curiousity here. I have reported internally, but I don't expect a quick answer today.
