    Email address with dot as the second character returns invalid email validation

    Asked by MartinSA on June 25, 2014 at 04:57 AM

    Since today the emailfield required won't accept emailadresses with an dot in it anymore. For example: j.doe@example.com. I've made an example form with just this emailfield for you to see that it isn't working with an extra dot.

    Hopefully you can fix this quickly, because all of my forms can't be used right now!

    I am able to replicate the same. It happens when dot is the second character of the email address. Let me forward this thread to our developers so they can further check.

    We'll update you here once this get fixed. Thanks for reporting.
