How to show generic email address without it becoming a hyperlink?

What is the MarkDown language for using a generic email address for a set of instructions without the email address becoming a hyperlink?

For example … blah blah blah… Step 2 type in your email address (example: Step 3 blah blah blah

Pandoc’s default markdown won’t hyperlink a bare email address.
It will only be hyperlinked if you write it between <…>.

gfm will hyperlink it automatically.

Sorry, I forgot that this is the commonmark forum, not pandoc.
commonmark only hyperlinks emails if they come between angle
brackets. But some extensions/adaptations of commonmark
postprocess the output to add such links.

thanks for the awesome information.
