Hi, I think that this regex is not valid. It means that you expect .?? in
so I think you have problem if someone want root@localhost
Also it is not easy to see that alse user@xxxxxxxxx works (it is because
you forget to append $ after regex and ^ before regex.

Also this is not controller job, but unfortunatelly we don't have easy
accessible model in frontend to add validation, but it should change in
future ( I believe in ActiveResource branch).

You are right, but this is just a backup if javascript is off, primary
validation is in view, using jquery.

And yes, I should probably create better regexp (while I do not want to
have unreadable perfect one).

I think that problem is not that regex is not the best one, problem is that
valid email have problem to pass (root@localhost is valid address).
I suggest easy relaxed regex /^.+@.+$/
It is easy to read dummy regex, which all possible address must pass.
