Actually, no. It rejects a great many email addresses that are valid.

To validate a domain for delivery of email, check with the DNS by
requesting the A or MX record for that domain.
To validate an email address, check with the mail server for that
domain by sending a message to the address.
Neither of them should be "validated" by a regular expression.
Please refer to RFC 3696 <URL:http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3696.txt>
described as "Recommended techniques for applications checking or
manipulating domain and other internet names".
