IsEmailAddress

This function confirms whether or not a value matches a valid email syntax. The function returns true if the syntax is valid or false if it’s not.

NOTE: The function only provides syntax validation. It does not indicate whether the email address is deliverable. For example, the function will not check whether an MX record exists for the domain or whether the email address is a role-based email.

Output

A value of [email protected] will return the following output.
