Sorry I didn't read this message before my last reply asking about this... > Guys, with the "valid characters" now being: > user = [a-z0-9_-.=] > domain = [a-z0-9-.=] with not consecutive "-.", not > leading or ending "-." > > Maybe now they are cover the majority of the real life messages, > is that right? Domains ending with . are perfectly valid (and technically more correct as . is the root domain). I don't know how common it is for people to type a trailing dot on email addresses, but I do it all the time (and on this message too, just to prove a point).
