NAME

Data::Transpose::EmailValid - Perl extension to check if a mail is valid (with some autocorrection)

SYNOPSIS

  use Data::Transpose::EmailValid;

  my $email = Data::Transpose::EmailValid->new;

  ok($email->is_valid("user@domain.tld"), "Mail is valid");

  ok(!$email->is_valid("user_e;@domain.tld"), "Mail is not valid");

  warn $email->reason; # output the reason of the failure

DESCRIPTION

This module check if the mail is valid, using the Email::Valid module. It also provides some additional methods.

AUTO CORRECTION

This validator corrects common mistakes automatically:

  • .ocm instead of .com as top level domain for aol.com, gmail.com, hotmail.com and yahoo.com, e.g. tp@gmail.ocm.

  • Double dots before top level domain, e.g. tp@linuxia..de.

Please suggest further auto correction examples to us.

METHODS

input

$obj->is_valid($emailstring);
