To:aur-dev@archlinux.org From:BlackEagle Subject:[aur-dev] [PATCH] valid_email :: check if domain part is real Date:Wed, 21 Mar 2012 08:42:54 +0100
 

this can be used as an intermediate 'patch' util there is a validation
system in place.

the extra check is to verify that the domain part of a correctly
formatted email address is existing and in use. this will not at all
stop spammers since they can use bogus emails with valid domain parts
