One of our customers tells us his email address is considered as non valid. I tested it and indeed... the system says that his email address is not valid.
His email address hs the following shape:
I tested it with other email addresses and it seems that the dot in second position results in an invalid address.
for instance, firstname.lastname@example.org is ok...
I cannot tell my customer to change his email address... Any suggestion?

I already reported this issue here: http://www.jotformpro.com/answers/395738-E-mail-with-a-dot-in-it-won-t-be-accepted-anymore#0

I have retested it. And the problem only occurs if the dot is the second character of the part before the @.
Email addresses with a dot in third position are ok

That's a very interesting finding, thank you for sharing with us. I think the issue might be related to the email naming convention. Do you think the issue is resolved now? Or do you really need this naming convention email@example.com ?
We await for your response.

We are truly sorry for the inconveniences caused. The problem about email validation fixed.

Thanks for solving this problem.
@Jeanette : I do not decide about the way our customers build their email addresses...
We have many clients using the first letter of the forename followed by a dot followed by their last name... So yes, we do need this form of email address to be accepted...
