 Expression

^([\w\d\-\.]+)@{1}(([\w\d\-]{1,67})|([\w\d\-]+\.[\w\d\-]{1,67}))\.(([a-zA-Z\d]{2,4})(\.[a-zA-Z\d]{2})?)$

 Description

This pattern allows standard e-mail addresses (e.g. user@domain.com), sub domains (e.g. user@foo.domain.com), the new two- and four-letter domains (e.g. user@domain.tv and user@domain.name) and country codes (e.g. user@foo.com.us). Also, this patter follows the Network Solutions standard length of 67 characters for top-level domains. The reason I allow numbers to be entered in the domain suffix is for future planning. If you do not want numbers to be able to be added as a domain suffix (e.g. user@domain.123), simply delete the last two occurrences of “\d”.
Matches

foo@foo.com | foo@foo-foo.com.au | foo@foo.foo.info
 Non-Matches

foo@.com | foo@foo..com | foo@me@.com
