The following email will not pass the email validation:

Any ideas?

WebAssist built in validation for single letter domain names because in the past domain names couldn't be single letters. Hopefully WebAssist can put out an update, however, I'll be working on a fix. If I get something before they do I'll post it.

In a test using the latest release of CSS Form Builders server and client validations I'm able to use this email address without it failing validation. Do you have a link to a page that has the validation that is failing? It might also help if you can post back with a copy of the page in question.

Look for the function WAValidateEM on line 77 of the form_validation.js file.

On line 121,

if (domArr[x].search(acceptedPat) == -1 || domArr[x].length == 0 || (domArr[x].length < 2 && x >= domArr.length-2)) {

Change the last number -2 to -1
See below:

if (domArr[x].search(acceptedPat) == -1 || domArr[x].length == 0 || (domArr[x].length < 2 && x >= domArr.length-1)) {

This will allow any domain name 1 character or more to validate.

p.s. Giving credit where credit is due: maduic on came up with the solution.
