Email does not appear to be valid [RESOLVED]

When I try to manually register a new user with an email address, I get the message "Email does not appear to be valid." I have no ban rules. Brand new 2.6.4 install.

(Sorry... I'm sure this is something obvious that I'm missing! TIA)

    ensure there are no spaces. If you copy an email make sure to trim any white space from the beginning or end.

    filter_var($value, FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL) may be buggy in older version of php and it doesn't cover every possible variation


    Validates whether the value is a valid e-mail address.

    In general, this validates e-mail addresses against the syntax in RFC 822, with the exceptions that comments and whitespace folding and dotless domain names are not supported.

    grep is your friend.

    That must have been it, thank you so much! I worked when I manually typed it in.
