Subject [jira] [Commented] (VALIDATOR-376) EmailValidator says addresses such as x.y@gmail are valid although most mail apps will fail to send it
Date Wed, 30 Sep 2015 07:07:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VALIDATOR-376?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14936468#comment-14936468

Bernd Eckenfels commented on VALIDATOR-376:
-------------------------------------------

Have to correct myself, EmailValidator is using DomainValidator and that one already checks
for a hardcoded list of TLD and gmail is on it. It will be useable for emails in the future
and the validator is allowed to accept it - it might even be used by millions .... so the
case C) is there and the application should do D).

I am not sure if it is a good idea to provide actual network accessing code, as you typically
need retries, different policies and proxy support.

> The VALIDATOR-273 patch causes EmailValidator to allow addresses such as x.y@gmail. Unfortunately,
this is causing us problems as none of the email apps we have tried will actually allow that
email address to be sent. Although the RFCs may state it is valid, in practice it apparently
isn't. Some sort of option is needed to allow providing just the domain to fail. As a consequence
we have had to revert to a prior release of commons-validator.
