Email verification in vform

How it works:
- Verfies the email adress according to string patterns. Valid email string patterns could be of this format and probably many more:
- Erik Dahl <firstname.lastname@example.org>
- Erik Dahl <"email@example.com">
- Verifies that the domain part of the email address has a MX record - meaning that the <vinput type="email"/> does a domain name look-up.
- Domain name look-up can be disabled in the tag using the disable-domain-check="yes" attribute in the <vinput/> tag.
<vinput type="email" name="email" id="e_mail">
* Incorrect email address
<span style="color: green;">OK</span>
Can you use + sign in verfied input tag (<vinput/>)?
I got this question on the Roxen User Conference while talking about the Newsletter module.
Yes it will verify if you the user supplies firstname.lastname@example.org.
It was a valid question since apperently this format is used in order to directly mail coming from the subscription of the newsletter in separate folders directly.
