So, I looked into this recently for an extension.  I've been running for years
with a specific regex to check for email validity but it doesn't handle
"everything".

The problem is all sorts of exceptions to four billion RFCs (such as allowing
"+" characters, etc.).  The best I've seen is this:
http://www.dominicsayers.com/isemail/ but it is pretty hard core.  I'm not sure
if doing anything *less* is worthwhile.
