Regular Expression Details

Title Test Find Pattern Title
A short and sweet email address validator. Checks that the username starts and ends with an alphanumeric character, allows a few non-repeating 'special characters' (namely -, ., _, +, &) and checks for a sensible domain name (2-6 character TLD required). Some unconventional, yet technically valid, addresses will not be matched, but this is only a simple expression ;-)

Wow, this is the first one that I found that doesn't have reject obviously valid email address. Not perfect, doesn't work with IP address, but I'm not interested in that.
