Email Regex

Is it possible to get the regex expression or validation function that is used to verify if an email is valid or not.

 

According to RFC  "!def!xyz%abc@example.com" is a valid email, however Zuora says it's NOT Valid. 

 

I need to know regex / validation function that Zuora uses.

Re: Email Regex

Talking with support, they said they could not share what email validation rules they use because of their security policy. If anyone is reading this, you could easily figure out what types of emails are considered valid according to Zuora. I think most standard emails are accepted but once you get into special characters, that's where things slightly differ. All in all, your better left implementing an email validation standard that aligns with other validation rules you can find online.

 

9 out of 10 you'll be fine.

Re: Email Regex

Hello,

 

Any update on this question? Our team needs to understand what validation rules are used. That is, what regex is used for email validation.

Zuora has a stricter policy than most other services.

 

Thanks!
