[GE users] Annoying check of mail address

    [ The following text is in the "ISO-8859-1" character set. ]
    [ Your display is set for the "ISO-8859-10" character set.  ]
    [ Some special characters may be displayed incorrectly. ]


to increase the usability we decided to introduce a configfile check.
This should help to find wrong configfile entries or additional entries 
which are not
allowed. For some entries there would be not need for checking, that may 
be right,
but for the sale of completeness this was also done for e-mail adresses.
It should be not problem to solve this, because the workaround is easy

Add this to your check function

[A-Za-z0-9.-]*@[a-zA-Z0-9-]*.[a-zA-z][a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z])* #valid
         return 0;;

Or remove the complete mail adress test. Thanks for your hint.
You were the first who hit on this issue.

Best Regards,
