Validating email address in java

In this post we’ll talk about few common approaches for validating email addresses in Java Script.

First, when validating email addresses I believe it’s better to error on the permissive side.

here's an example, it will fail on the second email address (

link: Snippet: Yeah, split the emails string on the delimiter and then validate each email address.

Also, I have no control over the design, or on how that address string comes to my function, I can't add the email validation in the UI, so I am helpless there...

Here’s a Java example to show you how to use regex to validate email address. [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] 3. This is because the domain could exist, or even an MX record for that domain can exist in DNS, but neither of these conditions can guarantee that the address is I don't know if there is an automatically way in Java. If a MX record exists the domain can potentially get mails. I think there are no exactly effective way to vefy it. all we can do is to vefy the pattern, or more you vefy the mail domain such as SMTP do has a command 'VEFY' but almost all smtp server doesn't implement this command for security reason. With that said, we’ll start off with the most permissive solution and work our way towards the other end. That’s typically all I ever assume about an email address.If the email the user types in doesn’t follow that structure, odds are they made a typo.
