"Your E-Mail Validation Logic is Wrong"
Interesting read if you like email (address) trivia. Don't expect practical advice on how to do email address validation, though.
Hey guys, Thunderbird is STILL hiring developers. You can help modernize an application used by ~20,000,000 people and growing!
The open source community can make something better than Outlook, but only if folks come and build it.
So the answer depends on the context in which the address is used. SMTP servers that still support the obsolete parts of RFC 821 will accept \@@example.com as sender or recipient address. However, in the email's header the address has to be written as "@"@example.com, because \@@example.com is not permitted there.
The local part of an email address is allowed to consist of a single @ character. However, it must be encoded, e.g. as "@"@domain.example. RFC 821 (SMTP) allows using a backslash to escape a character even outside of quoted strings. RFC 822 (internet message format) explicitly states that this syntax is not permitted for the local part of an email address. All successor documents to these RFCs do not permit "backslash escaping" outside of a quoted string in the local part either.
Recent developments, everywhere is dealt with and okay 👍
As you may or may not know, Tusky was temporarily removed from the Google Play store, and it has since been reinstated.
We will always appeal against any removals that we see as incorrect, or fix something that we view as fixable. If for some reason the app can't stay on the Play Store we won't stop the development just because of it, we'll find other ways to reach you.
Thank you for reaching out while that whole mess was going on. 🙏
Last week I finally got around to setting up my own #matrix server. It was surprisingly easy thanks to matrix-docker-ansible-deploy ❤️
Happy "I love Free Software Day" everyone 💕
We would like to use this opportunity to let you know that K-9 Mail needs your help.
If you are affected by the startWithAudioMuted/startWithVideoMuted bug in Jitsi Meet, the following workaround might be interesting to you:
I wrote a blog post about what I've been up to in 2020.
I've created my own version of "The Great Suspender" with the analytics code and other phone home functionality removed.
I have no intention of maintaining this for anyone but myself. But feel free to use it as a starting point for your own version.
It's probably a good idea to stop using "The Great Suspender" 😞
