Subject [jira] Created: (VALIDATOR-273) EmailValidator does not support mailboxes at TLDs
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2009 16:45:59 GMT
EmailValidator does not support mailboxes at TLDs

                 Key: VALIDATOR-273
             Project: Commons Validator
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Framework
    Affects Versions: 1.3.1 Release
            Reporter: Marcos Sanz

According to RFC 5321 and 5322, mailboxes at top level domain names are permitted. Thus, the
syntax localpart@tld is valid. Explicit text to this topic can be found in RFC 5321:

2.3.5.  Domain Names

   A domain name (or often just a "domain") consists of one or more
   components, separated by dots if more than one appears.  In the case
   of a top-level domain used by itself in an email address, a single
   string is used without any dots.

Accordingly, the code

		EmailValidator ev = EmailValidator.getInstance();

should output "true".
