ISPconfig3, email validation issue

Discussion in 'Installation/Configuration' started by Justin Albstmeijer, Jul 4, 2008.

  1. Tested trunk checkout of today.

    when creating a DNS Zone,

    Email: [ ] e.g.

    - example is not an email
    - when leaving email empty it gets accepted
    - when trying to enter a valid email address (including '@') it gets rejected

    Email format invalid.

    Thats all correct except that a empty value is accepted, I added this to the bugtracker. As the example points out, the email has to entered in a special format, which is used by most DNS servers like BIND and MyDNS. Instead of:

    yourname[email protected]

    you must enter:
  3. Ah, ok clear..

    how does dns handle email addresses like [email protected]? could be interpreted as [email protected] or [email protected]

    seems somewhat confusing for users..
    Wouldn't it be better to default to and give a warning within the email management tab that there needs to be a forward for [email protected] as long as it does not exist?
