local part may contain equal sign
|Reported by:||pommi||Owned by:|
I'm using ezmlm-idx mailing list software. When confirming a subscription you have to send an email to an address in this format:
Sending this e-mail fails with the error:
Invalid e-mail address: <email>
The problem is the equal sign (=). According to Wikipedia the equal sign is a valid character in the local-part.
Attached is a patch to resolve this issue when sending an e-mail to an address with an equal sign in the local-part. But I found a couple of different regex-es for detecting/validating e-mail addresses, so I think this patch is not enough to fix the problem completely.
