    Error in E-Mail validation

    For some reason, my post text is not showing up, so here it goes again:

    Consider the following email address: peter@müller.de
    This is, since the .de tld supports umlauts, a valid email address, but the form says it is not.

    I think this should be fixed.

    Hi Jonas,

    First off, I'd like to apologize for this inconvenience. As a matter of fact, it is not the .de tld that is causing the 'invalidation' but rather the german character [ü]. I have submitted a ticket for this issue and hopefully our development team fixes this the soonest time possible. I cannot promise a lead time though as to when this will be fixed.

    We'll notify you of updates via this thread. Thank you for your patience. Please let us know if there's anything else you require assistance with.
