Subject [jira] [Commented] (WW-3883) EmailValidator does not allow to use + (plus sign) in emails
Date Fri, 05 Oct 2012 18:14:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WW-3883?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13470514#comment-13470514

Vidmantas Maskoliunas commented on WW-3883:
-------------------------------------------

copy/paste from FLEX-11917:
--------------------------------
Expected Results:
 The plus sign is a valid character for email addresses as referenced in RFC 2822 (http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2822.html)
Its use has gained popularity with its support in Gmail to allow custom filtering.
--------------------------------

GMail allows any suffix to the first part of the email address (before @) separated by + sign.
E.g. myemail+spam@gmail.com, myemail+mailinglists@gmail.com will both reach the myemail@gmail.com
inbox.

Therefore this character should be considered as a valid one in emails, while EmailValidator
does not take it into account and rejects +'s in email addresses
