^.+@[^\.].*\.[a-z]{2,}$
Description
Most email validation regexps are outdated and ignore the fact that domain names can contain any foreign character these days, as well as the fact that anything before @ is acceptable. The only roman alphabet restriction is in the TLD, which for a long time has been more than 2 or 3 chars (.museum, .aero, .info). The only dot restriction is that . cannot be placed directly after @. This pattern captures any valid, reallife email adress.
Matches
whatever@somewhere.museum | foreignchars@myforeigncharsdomain.nu | me+mysomething@mydomain.com
Non-Matches
a@b.c | me@.my.com | a@b.comFOREIGNCHAR
