Regular Expressions with SIMILAR TO


I think i have a problem with SIMILAR TO.
This is my regular expression...

    CONSTRAINT wrong_EMail
    CHECK(VALUE SIMILAR TO '[A-Za-z]+[0-9]*(#|!|%|&|.)*@[a-z]+(-|.)*[a-z]*(-|.)*.[a-z]{2,3}');

I thought that curly bracktes are useful to make a repetition
m through n times. In this case the repetition goes 2 times through 3 times but it wont work.

I don't figure out where am i wrong.
