I think this is a bug...
I tried to insert a player email address xyz@gmx.info. This always causes the host utility to report the following:
Quote:

ERROR:
Invalid player email address for Player 9. Ensure no space in or after email address.



I suppose this is because of the 4-letter Top Level Domain .info. Obviously this causes the email address check to fail.

Mailed to Ron too.

Here's the PERL code to validate emails.

Anyone see a problem, why it has trouble with wizard's email?

sub valid_address {
        my @testmail;
        my $data;
        my $test;
        my $flag = 0;
        ($data) = @_;
        @testmail = split('\,',$data);
        if ($data !~ /,/) {
                $testmail = $data;
        }
        foreach $test (@testmail) {
                if ($test=~ /(@.*@)|(\.\.)|(@\.)|(\.@)|(^\.)/ || $test!~ /^.+\@(\[?)[a-zA-Z0-9\-\.]+\.([a-zA-Z]{2,5}|[0-9]{1,5})(\]?) $/ ) {
                        $flag = 1;
                }
                else {
                        $flag = 0;
                }
        }
        if ($flag) { return 0; }
        else { return 1; }
}

I'm not 100% sure about perl syntax, but does '{2,5}' or '{1,5}' mean a substring, perhaps limiting the length to three characters? Although I'd read it as between 2 and 5 letters or between 1 and 5 numbers, and no combining letters and numbers. This is for the last section of the mail address only (.info in this case).

If there is a period after the email address as the original post includes, there will be a problem.

Quantifier {2,5} means that element preceeding it must occur at least 2 times but no more than 5 times.
