A library for validating emails against several RFC.

Supported RFCs

This library aims to support RFCs:

Supported versions

Curent major version with full support is v3

Version Released EOL Only critical bug fixes Full
v3.x 2020/12/29 - X X
v2.1.x 2016/05/16 01/2022 X
v1.2 2013/19/05 YES

Requirements

Note: PHP version upgrades will happen to accomodate to the pace of major frameworks. Minor versions bumps will go via minor versions of this library (i.e: PHP7.3 -> v3.x+1). Major versions will go with major versions of the library

Installation

Run the command below to install via Composer

composer require egulias/email-validator

Getting Started

EmailValidatorrequires you to decide which (or combination of them) validation/s strategy/ies you'd like to follow for each validation.

A basic example with the RFC validation

<?php

use Egulias\EmailValidator\EmailValidator;
use Egulias\EmailValidator\Validation\RFCValidation;

$validator = new EmailValidator();
$validator->isValid("example@example.com", new RFCValidation()); //true

Available validations

  1. RFCValidation: Standard RFC-like email validation.
  2. NoRFCWarningsValidation: RFC-like validation that will fail when warnings* are found.
  3. DNSCheckValidation: Will check if there are DNS records that signal that the server accepts emails. This does not entails that the email exists.
  4. MultipleValidationWithAnd: It is a validation that operates over other validations performing a logical and (&&) over the result of each validation.
  5. MessageIDValidation: Follows RFC2822 for message-id to validate that field, that has some differences in the domain part.
  6. Your own validation: You can extend the library behaviour by implementing your own validations.

*warnings: Warnings are deviations from the RFC that in a broader interpretation are acceptded.

<?php

use Egulias\EmailValidator\EmailValidator;
use Egulias\EmailValidator\Validation\DNSCheckValidation;
use Egulias\EmailValidator\Validation\MultipleValidationWithAnd;
use Egulias\EmailValidator\Validation\RFCValidation;

$validator = new EmailValidator();
$multipleValidations = new MultipleValidationWithAnd([
    new RFCValidation(),
    new DNSCheckValidation()
]);
//ietf.org has MX records signaling a server with email capabilites
$validator->isValid("example@ietf.org", $multipleValidations); //true

Additional validations

Validations not present in the RFCs

  1. SpoofCheckValidation: Will check for multi-utf-8 chars that can signal an erroneous email name.

How to extend

It's easy! You just need to implement EmailValidation and you can use your own validation.
