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 11:17:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VALIDATOR-376?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14936722#comment-14936722

Ralph Goers commented on VALIDATOR-376:
---------------------------------------

1. IMO the change in VALIDATOR-273 was a functional change and was not documented. What I
am proposing is to revert the default behavior back so people can upgrade from old releases.
2. I shouldn't have said "mail app". It isn't the mail apps but the smtp servers that are
rejecting the email address. The mail apps do act a bit weird when this happens - in Mac mail
I get a pop up that says the smtp server is unavailable and it asks me to try another. I know
our exchange server is also refusing it but I don't know how that behaves.

> 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.
