Bug?: ERROR 1.Email address is invalid.

    Today I wanted to add some new e-mail addresses to one of the domains on ISPconfig3

    Some of the e-mail addresses are single letter once (like a@domain.tld, b@domain.tld .... )

    Unfortunately ISPconfig3 will give an "ERROR 1.Email address is invalid." when doing so!

    Is there maybe a quick fix for this?

    You can change the regular expression in the form definition file of the mail_user form.

    I've had a look at the files in /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/web/mail/form, but I can not find the regular expression that is handeling this.

    Any more clues?

    Sorry, the email regex is defined in the global form handling file /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/lib/classes/tform.inc.php

    Around line 643 you will find the regular expression for the email address validation:

    if(!preg_match("/^\w+[\w.-]*\w+@\w+[\w.-]*\w+\.[a-z]{2,10}$/i", $field_value)) {

    I found it, but unfortinatly it did not work for me. I guess I'm doing something wrong.
    I've changed the {2,10} part in
    if(!preg_match("/^\w+[\w.-]*\w+@\w+[\w.-]*\w+\.[a-z]{2,10}$/i"$field_value)) { 
    to: {1,10}
    if(!preg_match("/^\w+[\w.-]*\w+@\w+[\w.-]*\w+\.[a-z]{1,10}$/i"$field_value)) {

    What you changed is the length of the domain suffix. e.g. you would be able to add now things like user@domain.c instead if domain.com. Try this instead:

    if(!preg_match("/^\w+[\w.-]*@\w+[\w.-]*\w+\.[a-z]{2,10}$/i", $field_value)) {
