Subject [validator] Validating email address with non-ASCII characters
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2012 21:41:26 GMT
Hi all, it seems that neither EmailValidator.isValid(string), nor GenericValidator.isEmail(string),
accept non-ASCII UTF-8 (international) characters. Both of these methods return false when
I pass in something like this: юзер

 According to RFC 6531 non-ASCII characters are now allowed in the email address. Here is
the short version from Wiki (

 "International characters above U+007F are permitted by RFC 6531
, though mail systems may restrict which characters to use when assigning local parts."

 Any plans to fix this in the Validator?
