Subject [jira] [Created] (VALIDATOR-376) EmailValidator says addresses such as x.y@gmail are valid although most mail apps will fail to send it

Ralph Goers created VALIDATOR-376:
-------------------------------------

             Summary: EmailValidator says addresses such as x.y@gmail are valid although most
mail apps will fail to send it
                 Key: VALIDATOR-376
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VALIDATOR-376
             Project: Commons Validator
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Routines
    Affects Versions: 1.4.1 Release
            Reporter: Ralph Goers


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.
