!! If you get below warning message when you save IPN in PayPal !!

!! You must enter a properly formatted URL into the Notification URL field in order to activate Instant Payment Notification. !!

It is because PayPal Notification URL does not accept @  You need to change email
format from xxxxxx@xxxxx.xxx to xxxxxx*xxxxx.xxx on Notification URL. (* will be replaced back to @ on our server side) then the URL will be as below
