#12817 closed Bug (fixed)

email validator is maybe too stingy (user@hostname fails)

Reported by: tvon Owned by: anonymous

Has patch: no Needs documentation: no

Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


I realize people don't tend to have email addresses without TLDs these days, but all the same it's legal and potentially useful for development. For example, if user@localhost is allowed, you don't need anything more than local delivery.

A brief mention on IRC indicated there probably isn't any real interest in a change like this, but I thought I'd toss it out there anyway.

The fix for #4833 [4e2e8f39d19d79a59c2696b2c40cb619a54fa745] is allowing 'localhost' by default. Other whitelisted domains can be added by creating a custom EmailValidator instance. I think we can consider this issue as fixed.
