4 things

  • You'd be better off testing against a blacklist of "rules" (regexes or even better subs) , your approach with or'ed regexes won't be maintainable.
  • You'll also need a quality management telling you which rule rejected which email address, at least a log
  • If that's still your formmailer, attackers will quickly learn how to beat your rules.
  • Who told you I'm Russian?
