Picking up possible email typos in emails

Mail checkAs you know we do not require email confirmation on Sign Up in Freedcamp. This to ensure that you can start working with the system straight away. It was important for us to make sure that you typed emails correctly. We searched and found Mailcheck library created by Kicksend, @derrickko.

Last release we added email typo spot checks to Invite People page. It is not perfect, as you can see on a screenshot, but at least it will draw your attention to potential errors in emails you typed and all your invites will get their email hassle free.

While researching this topic we also found Mailgun’s free email validation API. I know there are software developers following our blog who might be interested to hear about other options to validate a bit more just email’s syntax.
