"Great question! The standardized-tag has to be a member of the list held by IANA here: http://www.iana.org/assignment... At the moment this list has one member: "IPv6" Anything else, therefore, is currently not a standardized-tag. is_email has no means of checking whether any more members have been added to this list, but luckily the test is still valid :-) You may have spotted a logical inconsistency here. I took the view that we shoudn't validate TLDs because more could be added at any time. Indeed many additional TLDs *have* been added since I last worked on this code. On the other hand, is_email validates against a snapshot of a standardized-tag list that might go out-of-date at any time. Just because it hasn't doesn't mean I was right!" - Dominic Sayers

"Historically TLDs have always been 2 characters or more, but there's nothing to stop ICANN issuing a 1 character TLD if they choose to do so. More detail: there's nothing in the RFCs to stop them doing it. The aim of isemail is to embody the principles of the RFCs. It's possible there is an ICANN policy document stating that they will never issue a 1 character TLD but that's outside the scope of isemail. If they submit their policy as an RFC then we would be inclined to add it." - Dominic Sayers

"Hi Colin. It would be helpful if you quoted the relevant RFC when you make assertions like "x is not allowed" I agree the diagnostic message for this example is not perfect. It would be better to cite RFC 5321 section 4.1.2 where quoted-pairSMTP is defined as a backslash followed by any ASCII character in the range %d32-126. In other words, the diagnosis is correct: this is a valid email address. http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc..." - Dominic Sayers

"There seems little point supporting this RFC until there are a majority of servers in the wild that use SMTPUTF8 (http://serverfault.com/questio.... Until then an address that uses non-ASCII characters will be transmitted on a best-efforts basis, so validation against a standard isn't really possible. I would be very happy to accept a pull request that adds support for this RFC if anyone wants to make one here https://github.com/dominicsaye...." - Dominic Sayers
