If you've ever written any code that sends emails before, I'm pretty sure that you've had to validate the email addresses that are entered by users. Email address validation can be tricky at the best of times and with international domain names in email addresses, almost anything is possible. In my opinion, there is no 100% reliable way of validating email addresses, you just have to make sure that it conforms to as reasonable a standard as possible.
