Email Validator

The user could enter "validate" and could return whether it is a valid email. Would check for invalid characters, ensure an @ symbol, and check the domain. Thoughts about what sort of plugin this would be? Or if someone else is making something similar? I was thinking it would maybe be a goodie? Some feedback and tips would be nice.

This would most-likely be a goodie but checking the domain would be tricky and might be better served as another plugin type. If someone has a source suggestion for this--please post.

Would this be useful?

The link to on that page seems broken. And the URL that link is supposed to go to, seems broken, too.

But I've found this page, which seem to be the reffered Perl Module:

It looks like that would work! Please go ahead and start developing it. If you get stuck please make a Pull Request to the Goodie repository and we'll be able to help you out.

I think, the module is useful.

<quote>This module determines whether an email address is well-formed, and optionally, whether a mail host exists for the domain. [...] Either the Net::DNS module or the nslookup utility is required for DNS checks. The Net::Domain::TLD module is required to check the validity of top level domains.</quote>

Should I try, to develop this as a Goodie?

PS: with 'f' not with ph ;)

It looks like this is well underway, but I thought I would mention that I have a pretty good regex pattern I use for email validation that might help this task.
