Php function for validating email addresses
Indeed, the impact that it has made on all of our lives in such a short period of time is immeasurable.
Hi guys....newbie on the forums here :) I have developed a php form processor for a project i am working on.
However, when a deeper and more complex validation is required, we should take a look at well-trusted validation classes, such as Pear’s HTML_Quick Form class, or many other validation classes widely available out there.
The third option involves writing our own set of functions for in-deep email address checking, which can be considered an intermediate solution between the two above described.
Furthermore, it's asynchronous nature offers both parties the freedom of participating at a time most convenient to their time schedule.
Given such qualities, it isn't a surprise that email has become a defacto tool of business for communicating with its clientele.
Whatever the case, validating a visitor’s email address to see if it belongs to a real domain is always a good step to help you avoid, at least partially, several possible problems that arise when applications are receiving incoming bogus data.
