Mail::RFC822::Address validates email addresses against the grammar described
in RFC 822 using regular expressions.  How to validate a user supplied email
address is a FAQ (see perlfaq9): the only sure way to see if a supplied email
address is genuine is to send an email to it and see if the user recieves it.
The one useful check that can be performed on an address is to check that the
email address is syntactically valid.  That is what this module does.
This module is functionally equivalent to RFC::RFC822::Address, but uses
regular expressions rather than the Parse::RecDescent parser.  This means that
startup time is greatly reduced making it suitable for use in transient scripts
such as CGI scripts.
