      Description

      The VALIDATOR-273 patch causes EmailValidator to allow addresses such as x.y@gmail. Unfortunately, this is causing us problems as none of the email apps we have tried will actually allow that email address to be sent. Although the RFCs may state it is valid, in practice it apparently isn't. Some sort of option is needed to allow providing just the domain to fail. As a consequence we have had to revert to a prior release of commons-validator.
