User registration: email address validation problems - WP incorrect validation? (2 posts)

    Hello

    I am trying to register a user through the admin panel that has an email address formed as follows:

    SteveO'Neill@domain.com

    This is a valid email address, but WordPress produces the error message:

    "ERROR: The e-mail address isn’t correct."

    What's the issue here? I'm assuming it's considering the ' character to be causing the problem, but this email address works, and according tho this article its form is correct:

    Any ideas what's going on here?

    Thanks

    The ' in the email address. WordPress can't parse it.
