I've been looking for a simple way of checking that a string is an e-mail
address. I don't need to check if the address exists, just if the format of
the string matches. There seem to be lots of different methods, can someone
suggest which is the best, with justification. I'm not looking for total
accuracy, I'd much rather let a few false positives through than get any

As of now I have an Inspect statement to count for @ character. If the count
is one then I am accepting the e-mail id.
Any body who can enlighten me more on this topic.

Sorry guys if this is the wrong ng for this post - wasn't sure where
it should go so thought I'd try here first.
The following is the content (less a chunk of the encoded attachment)
of a file on the o/s (Solaris 9) called e-mail.txt.
The following command is being executed:
/usr/lib/sendmail -t -f email@example.com < email.txt
In my e-mail client (Outlook) I see a well-formed e-mail message and
an attachment. If I send to another user (a customer) they see the
encoded content in-line with no atachment (using the same client).
What I would like to do is to understand if there...Specific E-Mail Validation Script

I am running MailScanner to filter spam with Sendmail. This is a
front end for an aging Exchange server. Spam is being dumped to a
mail box so that if a user comes back missing a message we can
retrieve the false positive. Is there a way to dump any mail that is
not addressed to a valid user? That would save processing in
MailScanner and make it easier to find the false positives when we
need to manually look through the spam mailbox.
So, is there a way to check against a list of valid e-mail addresses?
Can you see any problems to this approach?

I'm having a problem in the validation of e-mail using regular
expressions. The expression below meets my need for validation, but
invalidate emails correct, for example:
carlos.pedro @ hotmail.com
How do to validate these e-mails without losing the validation is
if _N_ = 1 then
exp = PRXPARSE("/^[A-Za-z0-9](([_\.\-]?[a-zA-Z0-9]+)*)@(([A-Za-z0-9]+)
Validating an email address is not straightforward - there are many
exceptions to the basic rules (such as that the second-level do...How can I validate a given e-mail address?
I need to know wether a given e-mail address ("firstname.lastname@example.org") is
valid - not if it's simply syntactically correct (that's trivial to
verify), but wether it corresponds to an actual, live, address.
Is there some way to do this? I'm not sure myself how to approach this
Thanks in advance.
