Summary: MediaWiki should do validation of e-mail addresses
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Email

Currently MediaWiki doesn't seem to verify e-mail addresses entered by users,
seeing as many e-mails get sent with addresses that don't even have an
apostrophe (@). These e-mails go lost or end up in the wrong places without the
user ever receiving a warning, as the mails cannot be bounced either.

MediaWiki should be doing a (better) job at verifying e-mail addresses. Ideally
using a fully RFC2822 address checker with MX record verification, but we could
at least check if the address contains an apostrophe.
