Hi,

In Bash, given a variable, $Emailaddr, with, for instance, mariolima@multisites.com.br, I need to have separate variables like:
$user with mariolima
$domain with multisites
$class with .com.br

How to accomplish it in a Bash script?

Thanks.
Mario./

#!/bin/bash
Emailaddr='mariolima@multisites.com.br'
user=${Emailaddr%@*}
class=${Emailaddr##*@}
domain=${class%%.*}
class=${class#$domain}

you could do it with a combination of sed and awk like this:
echo mariolima@multisites.com.br | awk -F@ '{print $2}'
#would return: multisites.com.br
 
echo mariolima@multisites.com.br | sed 's/@.*//g'
#would return mariolima

echo "mariolima@multisites.com.br" | awk -F@ '{user=$1;m=split($2,a,".");print a[1],a[2],a[3] }'
