Email Validator needs to allow dash

I found the following email validation code in the newsgroup and it works great except it won't allow a dash in the name. I do not understand regular expressions so I'm unsure of how to fix it.

Can someone who understands regular expressions tell me what needs to be changed to allow a dash in the email name

public static bool IsValidEmailAdd ress(string sEmail

if (sEmail == null

return false


return Regex.IsMatch(s Email, @

I've been using this pattern to verify email addresses: ^(+)(+)@(+)\.(+) But I've recently discovered that addresses with a dash in them won't pass this test. Seems to me they should pass. What's wrong?

I was just wondering if there is a reason (maybe a RFC requirement?) that the built in email address regular expression for the RegularExpressionValidator in ASP.NET doesn't support email aliases ending in a dash. For example, the following address will not validate: test-address-@hotmail.com Thanks, -Steven

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.
