Please can someone help me. I have installed exo php helpdesk on one of my linux boxs and its working great but I have a problem with registing new users. When you try and enter a persons e-mail it says
The email address you specified was not in a valid known format
We have an e-mail adresses like firstname.lastname@example.org.
It will accept email@example.com.
Please can someone have a look at the php code and advice me how I can remove the validation for the e-mail.
In the attached zip file is the orginal program that I downloaded from the site. I have e-mailed the support for the site but they do not come back.
Thanks for all your help,

Looks like it comes from the conf.php file and validates against a function preg_match. I'll keep digging.
Interestingly it doesn't bring up the same error when installing the system I'll have to keep checking.

**NOTE** To anyone using phpexo desk,
The default code is very vulnerable to SQLInjection attacks!
Recommend strongly not to use it or check the code and sanitise it yourself correctly.
