Email does not appear to be valid [RESOLVED]

When I try to manually register a new user with an @hotmail.com 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.
