email addresses and URLs

Only capitalize email if it starts a sentence, otherwise it is always lowercase.

Email addresses and URLs are mostly lowercase and always bold in print publications. Do not bold on web pages. Please note that email addresses and URLs are not case sensitive: jsmith@adelphi.edu.

Never use http:// or www. They are not necessary.

Avoid breaking email addresses and URLs. If the address will not fit on a line, don’t add a hyphen or other punctuation. Break it before existing punctuation, such as periods, hyphens, slashes, double slashes, etc.
