plugin or code to verify email addresses ?

#1
TCMD 8.02 - 12.10, under XP, for now.

Hi,

I have used Express Archiver from their .com site from several years ago to extract email addresses and names from the emails I have stored in my Outlook Express files. The format of the file is:

NAME,E-Mail address

With the plugins available and since everyone uses email addresses - is there a plugin or existing code to verify email address formats? I'm not looking for valid, working, current, etc email address validation but just to see if there is a @ and a .com .org or whatever else that every email address has.

Thanks in advance

You mentioned seeing .com or .org (et c.) on the end. Country codes can also
appear (and typically do) ... .ca (Canada), .ru (Russia) ... there are quite a
few.

Wouldn't a simple check for the existence of "@ " in the string
somewhere in the middle and followed by a "." near the end clobber
most cases?

OP stated he isn't looking for existing, but wellformed adresses.
