Validating an email single dating site jewish personals
To fix this problem, you implement an activation system where, after registering, I am sent an email with a link I must click.
Think about it this way: I register for your website under the email address . That’s probably going to bounce off of the illustrious mail daemon, but the formatting is fine; it’s a valid email address.
Its only to help the user writing the correct address. Most times you just want to validate that the user entered the email in the right format. So I like this better than the original answer but a Septik's answer is comprehensive and I up-voted that as well.
Verimail keeps validating on keyup, which means, as soon as you start typing, you get an error message.
If you actually check the Google query I linked above, people have been writing (or trying to write) RFC-compliant regular expressions to parse email addresses for years.
But what if I told you there were a way to determine whether or not an email is valid without resorting to regular expressions at all? The activation email is a practice that’s been in use for years, but it’s often paired with complex validations that the email is formatted correctly.
