Anyhoo, here's the modded regex builder://the variables$local = '[\x20-\x2D\x2F-\x7E]';$alnum = 'a-z0-9';$domain = "([$alnum]([-$alnum]*[$alnum] )?
The easiest way I've found to validate a properly formed email address is this:if(!
eregi("^:alnum:[a-z0-9_.-]*@[a-z0-9.-] \.[a-z]$", $_POST['Email Address'])) It basically just wants to see some alphanumeric characters an @ sign a . So far it has done what I need for quite a while now.. :)Tim There seems to be a lot of confusion about escaping special characters within a bracket expression enclosed in The reference is the regex man page at This is very poor usability, and directly contravenes accessibility guidelines.What we’re going to do in this article is far less intrusive.With more than a decade's professional experience, he is a published author, a frequent blogger and speaker, and an outspoken advocate of standards-based development.A little interesting and hopefully on topic point I found while browsing the internet at: to RFC 822 (see email addressesare case-sensitive in the part before the "@" sign, except for thespecial address "POSTMASTER", which is not case-sensitive. The RFC prohibits control characters in the address.I'm running this in an AJAX app right now and it does what it says on the tin.If you're uncomfortable with the character length limits on domain and tldnames, change them to taste.**/ hodsfords:i love your expression,and i've came out with a solutions which does not need to set the number of times for the can accept unlimited number of times, but @ least 1 time / .xxx$exp = "^[a-z0-9] [a-z0-9\? @[a-z0-9_-] (\.[a-z0-9_-] )*\.[a-z] $"; This example checks for a valid IP address or CIDR notation address range.]]
