User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 If you try and create a user account containing a single quote character (') it fails with a message that it is not a valid email address. If you do this from the public 'Create Account' page rather than the admin pages the error message is more detailed and reads: The e-mail address you entered (email@example.com) didn't pass our syntax checking for a legal email address. A legal address must contain exactly one '@', and at least one '.' after the @. It must also not contain any of these special characters: \ ( ) & < > , ; : " [ ], or any whitespace. As you can see the single quote isn't mentioned as a banned character. This may be a regression as it appears to have been fixed in bug 165221. Bug 203795 may also be related but seems to be for more extreme deviations from common email addresses that are still RFC 822 compliant. Even if you do not intend to support ' characters in email addressses, the error message should be updated to include it as a special character. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click add user on the admin menu 2. Enter a user name firstname.lastname@example.org 3. Press OK Actual Results: An error message that the address is invalid Expected Results: Created the user
