Subject RE: [validator] EmailValidator 1.4.1 returns true for some invalid(?) email addresses
Date Tue, 16 Jun 2015 17:19:00 GMT
Hi Ayoma,

RFC 5321 goes on to say, "This makes the requirement, described in more detail below, that
only fully-qualified domain names appear in SMTP transactions on the public Internet, particularly
important where top-level domains are involved."

Does EmailValidator provide a way to validate an email address is valid for use on the public
Internet?


Thanks,

Dave

Hi Dave,

Mentioned email addresses are valid and they are mailboxes for TLD users ("gmail" is a valid
TLD - http://data.iana.org/TLD/tlds-alpha-by-domain.txt)

Please check following :

Bug report : https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VALIDATOR-273
RFC: http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5321#section-2.3.5   * (states : In the
case of a top-level domain used by itself in an email address, a single string is used without
any dots.)*


Best Regards,
Ayoma.
