<input type=”email”> needs less validation because it’s a user input field. If you keep to strings that can be entered by normal field typing, you’ll never see any of the odd cases that you’d otherwise want to validate.


For initial creation of an EAI, if you want to create email addresses that others can use, make sure there’s a transcription step somewhere in the process of creation of the EAI 


UA doesn’t mean universal acceptance of ALL

My focus is on the initial creation of an EAI to ensure it is well formed.


I think, for this thread, your focus is on verifying a user entered EA(I) which should be an existing EA(I).
