Hi I have an email address that is not passing my regex validation.
anyone know the correct syntax to deal with
aaa.bbb-@aaa.co.uk it's the dash that is casing the issue

I currently have tried

^([0-9a-zA-Z]([-.\w]*[0-9a-zA-Z])*@(([0-9a-zA-Z])+([-\w]*[0-9a-zA-Z])*\.)+[a-zA-Z]{2,9})$


^([a-zA-Z0-9_\-\.]+)@((\[[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.)|(([a-zA-Z0-9\-]+\.)+))([a-zA-Z]{2,4}|[0-9]{1,3})(\]?)$

You could set the input type to "email" and let the browser do the work.

Try this function from when I asked the question a couple years ago.  Used this function on a Fortune 500's eCommerce site for a number of years without any hiccups.
