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.
