Yeah, if they do end up opening up TLDs as is being discussed, the filter will need to change. As it is I was too lazy to look up all the valid current TLDs, let alone what the proposed restrictions for the open TLDs will be.

I've only ever implemented email validation in web scripting, and never bothered actually testing the existence of the email server via ping or look-up, since ultimately, if the email fails to get delivered, it's all the same (null) result, regardless if it was a non existing server, a non-existing daemon, or a non-existing user.

That's a really good point - there's no real reason to ping the server in this case.

Well, I'd think that it does increase the probability that it's a good address if the domain is there!

Here's what I've got so far
