Hi Michael,

To validate a string, we can use a regular expression to achieve this. Use
a patter to find match. Here is an example.

Regex regex = new Regex(@"^[\w-\.]+@([\w-]+\.)+[\w-]{2,4}$",
RegexOptions.Compiled | RegexOptions.IgnoreCase);
return regex.IsMatch("aa*");

If anything is unclear, please feel free to let me know.
