Not a 100% email validation. It doesn't work with IP-Adresses, but it's good for most common cases. At least I hope so.

The original expression accepts adresses like [email protected]___.__ , this should work better: ^((?:(?:(?:[a-zA-Z0-9][\.\-\+\_]?)*)[a-zA-Z0-9])+)\@((?:(?:(?:[a-zA-Z0-9][\.\-\_]?){0,62})[a-zA-Z0-9])+)\.([a-zA-Z0-9]{2,6})$ But one problem remains: the max length of the Domainname is not correctly defined.
