Home Forums JavaScript Email verification…oh no, not that! Reply To: Email verification…oh no, not that!


Well, if it was important, I wouldn’t be checking if it’s a valid email client-side surely.

But there’s nothing wrong with using regex in this case, I don’t think JS has a built-in method for it. There may also be libraries that have this as part of their core function.

Don’t forget that using an HTML5 input type=email will solve the issue in modern browsers anyway.
