Hello,

I recently had a very nasty encounter sending newsletters, in wich one email had an invalid char ( ï ). this made the system act up and caused some spam to several ppl.

To avoid this for future mailings i was wondering if there is an easy way to make a function in mysql (phpmyadmin) to check a column if it contains an invalid email.

thnx
