Validating an email
Our free email address validator will help you do that in seconds.To verify the validity of an email address simply enter the email address into the box provided and our "validate email address" tool does the rest.Finding information on the Internet is only one part of your research: assessing the quality and timeliness of that information is the other.Not only can it be a waste of time to read through a site and implement the information and suggestions found there, only to later find that they were inaccurate, but such sites may pose a health or safety problem if that information directly affects your health and safety or that of your family, pets, employees, co-workers, or clients. We may be looking for entertainment, or information on a specific subject, or just browsing, following interesting links as they come our way.
Here’s a fairly common code sample from Rails Applications with some sort of authentication system: If you’re experienced at Regex, this seems simple. Sections 3.2.4 and 3.4.1 of the RFC go into the requirements on how an email address needs to be formatted and, well, there’s not much you can’t do in your email address when quotes or backslashes are involved.For numeric fields, there is a convenient way to validate a value range, but we want to select to run a custom validation script.After the “Edit” button is clicked, a new window will open that allows us to edit the new script: This script also includes a check for an empty string, so that the user can wipe out a wrong string and start from scratch.If (like me when I first saw this) you AREN’T experienced at Regex, it takes a while to parse. The local string (the part of the email address that comes before the @) can contain any of these characters: is a valid email address. For this reason, for a time I began running any email address against the following regular expression instead: Simple, right? This is often the most I do and, when paired with a confirmation field for the email address on your registration form, can alleviate most problems with user error. They can get ridiculously convoluted as in the case above and, according to the specification, are often too strict anyway.
