You have to escape all forward slashes not only the last one :)

$reg  = '|<Email>(.*)<\/Email>.*<Address1>(.*)<\/Address1>.*<FirstName>(.*)<\/FirstName>.*<LastName>(.*)<\/LastName>|isU';

Actually, since the pattern delimiter character was changed, I don't think that's necessary.

You are missing a concatenation operator ( . ) in line 8, just before the newline. Don't know if that will solve the issue entirely.

If you're new to PHP, this article will help you get a foundation.

It looks like you may be trying to parse an XML document.  PHP has specialized tools for this purpose and it's much easier than trying to write a regular expression!  If you can please post the test data, I will be glad to show you how it's done.
