Postfix Admin 2.3.6 says "Invalid domain name xxx.marketing, fails regexp check"

When you try to add new domains to Postfix Admin with new domain name extensions such as .marketing,.expert, etc. different than well-known std extensions., it complains about these extensions and does not alow to add the domain. It says "Invalid domain name xxx.marketing, fails regexp check". Does anyone know how to disable or improve this regexp check?

Version 2.3 was released October 26th 2009 which makes it so old that it's probably obsolete today.  The latest release appears to be 2.91 and it can be downloaded here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/postfixadmin/files/

My first step would be to upgrade to the latest release, then see if the problem persists. If it is still stuck, then you can use a code scanner to look for the message text and thereby find the origin point of the regexp check.  Once you find that you will be able to change the code to include the new top-level domains.  The current IANA TLD list is curated here:
http://data.iana.org/TLD/tlds-alpha-by-domain.txt

This article shows a general conceptual design of test-driven development, including near the end a script where I have used the IANA TLD list in a regular expression to validate URLs.

Found the relevant code line inside functions.inc.php and changed the char length 6 to 12 to make it work.

if (!preg_match ('/^([-0-9A-Z]+\.)+' . '([0-9A-Z]){2,6}$/i', ($domain)))

Thanks
