How to validate an email address in JavaScript

How can an email address be validated in JavaScript?

Using regular expressions is probably the best way. You can see a bunch of tests here (taken from chromium)

function validateEmail(email) {
    var re = /^(([^<>()\[\]\\.,;:\[email protected]"]+(\.[^<>()\[\]\\.,;:\[email protected]"]+)*)|(".+"))@((\[[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\])|(([a-zA-Z\-0-9]+\.)+[a-zA-Z]{2,}))$/;
    return re.test(String(email).toLowerCase());
}

Here’s the example of regular expresion that accepts unicode:

var re = /^(([^<>()\[\]\.,;:\[email protected]\"]+(\.[^<>()\[\]\.,;:\[email protected]\"]+)*)|(\".+\"))@(([^<>()[\]\.,;:\[email protected]\"]+\.)+[^<>()[\]\.,;:\[email protected]\"]{2,})$/i;

But keep in mind that one should not rely only upon JavaScript validation. JavaScript can easily be disabled. This should be validated on the server side as well.

Here’s an example of the above in action:

function validateEmail(email) {
  var re = /^(([^<>()[\]\\.,;:\[email protected]\"]+(\.[^<>()[\]\\.,;:\[email protected]\"]+)*)|(\".+\"))@((\[[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\])|(([a-zA-Z\-0-9]+\.)+[a-zA-Z]{2,}))$/;
  return re.test(email);
}

function validate() {
  var $result = $("#result");
  var email = $("#email").val();
  $result.text("");

  if (validateEmail(email)) {
    $result.text(email + " is valid :)");
    $result.css("color", "green");
  } else {
    $result.text(email + " is not valid :(");
    $result.css("color", "red");
  }
  return false;
}

$("#validate").on("click", validate);
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

<form>
  <p>Enter an email address:</p>
  <input id='email'>
  <button type='submit' id='validate'>Validate!</button>
</form>

<h2 id='result'></h2>
