Your RE is missing a dot. It says 'debor' followed by zero or more 'a'
followed by '@'.

You want ^debora.*@.*\..*

However just ^debora will do the same thing and is much simpler. It
will match any address beginning with 'debora'. All you do with
^debora.*@.*\..* is require a '@' and a '.' somewhere after the '@'.
The address probably has these things, but it isn't necessary to test
for them.
