What does the @ mean in an email address?

What does the @ mean in an email address?

The symbol @ in English means "at". (It is often used for prices: "5 pens @ $1" means "5 pens at a price of $1 each".)

So example@site543.com means "example at site543.com".

The symbol @ is usually called the "at sign" in English. Here is a detailed history of @.
