This is the email pattern I use to valid email address format.  I just want to add "`"  to this pattern. Sample john'ona.doe@mysite.com This is a good format.
^([\w\d\-\.]+)@{1}(([\w\d\-]{1,67})|([\w\d\-]+\.[\w\d\-]{1,67}))\.(([a-zA-Z\d]{2,4})(\.[a-zA-Z\d]{2})?)$

If that is the case, could you add that also?

To add characters to the name portion, just add them inside the first set of square brackets. There are a bunch of possible characters missing from the pattern above (including: ! # $ % & ' * + - / = ?  ^ _ ` . { | } ~), please see:

http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3696

That said, your expression does include some unnecessary redundancies (like "\w\d" which can be simplified to just \w).   You may need to escape out some of the special characters (possibly including `) but not all of them.

You're still a long way from accepting all valid email addresses.
see
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Email_address
Also I think ' is probably more common than `

This should catch all of the possible characters:

^([\w!#$%&\'\*+-/=\?^\`\.\{\|\}~]+)\@{1}(([\w-]{1,67})|([\w-]+\.[\w-]{1,67}))\.(([a-zA-Z\d]{2,4})(\.[a-zA-Z\d]{2})?)$

hi.. You just use this...

private static Regex emailRegex = new Regex(@"^([a-zA-Z0-9\'_\-\.]+)@((\[[0-9]{1,3}" +
         @"\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.)|(([a-zA-Z0-9\-]+\" +
         @".)+))([a-zA-Z]{2,4}|[0-9]{1,3})(\]?)$")
