Supported Email format

Hi guys and gals,

 

I want to validate the email before sending it to the constant contact api, is there any rules or RFC you guys follow?

Do you support quotes  in the email address, stuff like that.

 

Thank you.

Re: Supported Email format

We currently support any email address up to 80 characters long (including both local and domain portions) that includes ascii alpha-numeric characters.  We do not support any special formatting characters such as special symbols, non-ascii characters and any characters which would requiring quote escaping such as single quotes and space characters.  Here is an FAQ that discusses those restrictions: http://constantcontact.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5332/session/L3NpZC9SaEVvWEFMaw%3D%3D/kw...

 

Our validation is very similar to the addresses allowed on GMail and Hotmail.
