    Description

      My email address is not classed as valid because it has a '-' in the middle.

      I investigated your code, which looks fine to me. The problem lay in
      RegExp, as it was incorrectly matching against your patterns. I looked at the
      mailing list archives, and it appears that others are having similar
      problems with RegExp.

      So, I've replaced RegExp in your code with Apache ORO's Regular
      Expression handler. I've attached the files here. This has now solved my
      problem for me. It works with Jakarta ORO v2.0.4.
