in reply to valid email addresses

Read this in the perlfaq for a little bit more information on parsing email addresses against RFC 822.

    Actually at some point I had. I was putting something KISS together...

    If I were truly serious about verifying an EMAIL address I would do something like what was mentioned in the perlfaq only with a link to a perl_mod handled URL with a random string as part of the URL. The decyphering of the random URL would map back to their email address through a query of a session table.

    Complicated, but effective.
