Email Validator

Small PHP library to valid email addresses using a number of methods.

License Build Status Code Quality Downloads Github Stars

Features

  • Validates email address
  • Checks for example domains (e.g. example.com)
  • Checks for disposable email domains (e.g. mailinator.com)
  • Checks for role-based addresses (e.g. [email protected])
  • Checks for MX records (i.e. can receive email)

Install (using Composer)

composer require nojacko/email-validator:~1.0

Usage

Generalised Functions

  • isValid($email) Runs all the tests within this library. Returns true or false.
  • isSendable($email) Checks isEmail, isExample and hasMx. Returns true or false.

Specific Functions

If you want more control, use these functions seperately.

  • isEmail($email) Note: returns true or false only.
  • isExample($email)
  • isDisposable($email)
  • isRole($email)
  • hasMx($email)

These functions take a single argument (an email address) and return:

  • true, when function name is satisfied.
  • false, when function name is not satisfied.
  • null, when check is not possible, i.e. an invalid email is given.

Examples

$validator = new \EmailValidator\Validator();

$validator->isValid('[email protected]');              // true
$validator->isValid('[email protected]');                // false
$validator->isValid('[email protected]');             // false

$validator->isSendable('[email protected]');           // true
