Little tricks

How do I parse (check, extract) an email address? by MikeLacey
Posted: 15 Jan 03 (Edited 2 Nov 04)

Please browse through FAQ219-2884 and FAQ219-2889 first. Comments on this FAQ and the General FAQ's are very welcome.

Use the standard module Mail::Address, anything you can write yourself in a reasonable time won't be as good as this

Module Available From www.cpan.org - direct link at http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/module/Mail::Address

Quote (ModuleDocumentation):

Mail::Address extracts and manipulates RFC822 compilant email addresses. As well as being able to create Mail::Address objects in the normal manner, Mail::Address can extract addresses from the To and Cc lines found in an email message.
