Folks:

I need to find a regular expression that matches email addresses.

I've got one that mostly works ... but not entirely.

'/[\w\.-]+@[\w-\.]+\.[\w\.]{2,5}/'

The problem is, it doesn't understand when there is a plus sign in the email address (like david+list@xxxxxxxxxxxx).

If I change the regex to be '/[\w\.-\+]+@[\w-\.]+\.[\w\.]{2,5}/', it doesn't match anything.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Check the regex in jquery.validate. Search for "email." It's big and
ugly, but it does seem to work. It validates david+list@xxxxxxxxxxxx and
david.list@xxxxxxxxxxxx, but does not validate david@list@xxxxxxxxxxxx.
