e-mail validation

Developers should always remember that e-mail adressess may contain dot before @. For example, one of my e-mails is doctor.hogart@gmail.com. I've created it in late 2004 and I periodically still got messages like „invalid e-mail“.

Another point that should be noticed is that Google makes no difference between addresses with dots or without them (or with arbitary number of dots in them).
E.g. "doctor.hogart@gmail.com", "doctorhogart@gmail.com", "d.o.c.t.o.r.h.o.g.a.r.t@gmail.com" are the same:
