From IETF RFC2822: An E-Mail address is a specific Internet identifier that contains a locally interpreted string followed by the at-sign character ("@", ASCII value 64) followed by an Internet domain. The locally interpreted string is either a quoted-string or a dot-atom. Comments and enfolding white space SHOULD NOT be used around the "@" in the E-Mail address. (i.e. no space characters either side of the @ character)The domain portion identifies the point to which the mail is delivered. The local-part portion is a domain dependent string. In addresses, it is simply interpreted on the particular host as a name of a particular mailbox.
