Why @ Is Used in Email Address, None Else?

I remember my first email address was in Yahoo. I have never ever thought before or asked a question why there is @ in every email address. I just keep on using my email without bothering the usefulness of @. I have tried creating an email address without putting or adding @ next to the provider. And it didn't work. It said error. Meaning, it is a vital part of an email address. Another occasion which @ is used is in mathematics and in giving a price to a commodity or product for sale, @ is also used. Are you curious of that too?

I have used the internet for quite a long time. My first email account is Hotmail and I am still using it today. However, I don't know why they use "@" for the email address. This must be a special punctuation and it will not lead to a confusion.
