User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.2; Linux) (KHTML, like Gecko) Build Identifier: SMTP addresses are allowed to have single quote characters (') before the @ in an email address. I have such a user and this bug was fixed in 2.16, but seems to be not allowed in 2.18 by default. Could the default be changed? Reproducible: Always
SMTP addresses are allowed to have a LOT of things in them that they really shouldn't have. :-) However, I suppose people should be allowed to do what they want to do... What's the error that you get? I don't see any checkins on editparams that should cause that problem: <http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvslog.cgi?file=mozilla/webtools/bugzilla/editparams.cgi&root=/cvsroot>

This shows up during a sanity check. When I run the sanity check against my old database I get an error that the email address is invalid. When I checked the default emailregexp I found that it doesn't allow single quotes. This comes into play when working with people from Ireland.

We can reproduce this problem at bugzilla.novell.com (bugzilla 2.20). A possible fix is to change emailregexp from this: ^[\\w\\.\\+\\-=]+@[\\w\\.\\-]+\\.[\\w\\-]+$ to this: ^[\\w\\.\\+\\-=\']+@[\\w\\.\\-]+\\.[\\w\\-]+$ The fix would actually be in defparams.pl, not editparams.cgi
Fixed in Bugzilla 5.0.
