Re: [fw-wiz] obscure email address formats



$quoted_author = "ArkanoiD" ;

Is there any good reason to allow email addresses (in smtp, imap and alikes)
in any format different from mailbox@fqdn ?

The other caveat with validating email addresses is with IDN¹ you now
need to support unicode in the frontend although your existing regex should
cope fine with punycode'd FQDNs in the backend.
