MailValidation

A simple validator for email addresses. Internally, the mail gem is utilized to parse the email address.

LoLwut? Why not use a regex?

Rails already depends on the mail gem, so why not utilize that dependency to parse email addresses properly? Framework wise, it makes sense that we would rely on the mail gem for all things email related.

Usage

With ActiveRecord:

class User < ActiveRecord::Base
  validates :email, "MailValidation::Email" => true
end

With just ActiveModel:

class User
  include ActiveModel::Model
end

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
