Validating email addresses using jQuery and regex


Please briefly explain why you feel this question should be reported .


This is a regular-expression validating email addresses using jQuery comparison that will test a bunch of valid/invalid email address against the regex provided below.

This is a very basic functionality to validate the email address. In this post, I will show you how to validate the email address using jQuery. To validate the email address, I have created a separate function which based on email address, returns true or false. Email address validation is done using regular expression.

 function isValidEmailAddress(emailAddress) {
        var pattern = new RegExp(/^([\w-\.][email protected]([\w-]+\.)+[\w-]{2,4})?$/);
        return pattern.test(emailAddress);
