Note that's not a safe regex to validate email addresses. It will
exclude legitimate addresses like john.doe+la...@gmail.com.

I suggest just keeping it simple and checking for ^.*@.*$.

Or not using pattern/regexp at all and relying on the fact that browsers that support type=email should automagically do internal validation of the input against their baked-in pattern.
