Sorry, that didn't work ... it's grabbing a lot more than just the text
between the @ and period ... I think it's matching all text between the
first @ and the last period.

You may have an option to configure your regex for either minimal or maximal
matching. It sounds like it did a maximal match, instead of a minimal one.

If you can't find where to set that, then include some extra characters to
reduce the potential match range, eg

@[^./ \]*[.]

would allow anything but a period, forward slash, space, or backslash after
the @ sign. This should help terminate it before any path delimiters, or
other words.
