Validate Email Address using PHP


Below is a PHP function that validates an email address and returns the result as a boolean. This function uses the PHP built-in function filter_var and the filter FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL

<?php //php 7.0.8

  
function ValidateEmail($email)
{
  $email = '[email protected]';
  $isValid = filter_var($email, FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL);

  if ($isValid) 
   {
   return true;
   }
  else
   {
   return false;
   }
 
}
 
?>

Easy isn’t?
