in thread email check

While I personally don't mind recreating the occasional wheel, I think this might be a bit much. You'll need to read the RFC and fully understand all of it to determine what you'll need to do. There's a million halfassed ways of doing it (I've been guilty of this myself) but you probably would be better served just using the module and picking a more useful wheel to recreate that will give you the opportunity to learn more than the intimate details of parsing email addresses.
