Re: Is this email address valid? - http://isemail.info#comment-1687483101
"Hi Matt, I tried and failed to define a binary test for "valid" and "invalid" because there are contexts where a particular email is valid and other contexts where it isn't. Look at the list of result codes here: https://github.com/dominicsaye... Each has a category, and you should use this rather than a numeric value to determine which addresses are valid in your context. You might decide that ISEMAIL_VALID_CATEGORY, ISEMAIL_DNSWARN and ISEMAIL_RFC5321 are your valid categories. This will allow TLD addresses and addresses at non-existent domains as well as "normal" addresses. Hope this helps." - Dominic Sayers

"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 On the other hand, is_email validates against a snapshot of a standardized-tag list that might go out-of-date at any time.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
