Parsing email address with plus sign

Hi,

 

I am writing an app that connects to Constant Contact API. I noticed that whenever I tried to pass an email address with pluss addressing (some_user+test1@domain.tld), API does not parse it and returned null.

 

Do I need to encode it first? Or does the API does not support it?

Thanks,
Rudy

Update

 

I was using the GetContacts API call (https://developer.constantcontact.com/api_reference/index.html#!/Contacts/getContacts)


I noticed that it passes email address as a URL query string, so it has to be URL encoded first.

 

Solution:

 

$email = urlencode($email);
