Folks I'm having a hard time getting a regular expression to match a proper email address xxx@xxx.xxx AND not containing micro.com.

I can do either by itself but not both combined.

This will match an email address: (\w+([-+.']\w+)*@\w+([-.]\w+)*\.\w+([-.]\w+)*)
This will match NOT micro.com: ^((?!micro).)*$

Any chance some one can help me combine them.

Give the following expression a try:
^(\w+([-+.']\w+)*@\w+([-.]\w+)*\.\w+([-.]\w+)*)(?<!micro\.com)$
