Agree, but anyways checking suffixes is a bizarre and broken way of
validating an email. Just because a suffix exists it doesn't mean that
the domain exists, and if a domain doesn't exist because the TLD is
wrong or the 2nd level, or the 3rd level labels are wrong, the net
effect on the application is the same.
Validating suffixes is less than worthless. Either validate the whole
label chain or learn to deal with bounces.
I registered the cagnazzo.name domain name some three years ago and
decided not to renew it because my email c at cagnazzo.name was almost
unusable due be perceived as 'not valid' by many web applications. And
.name has been out for several years.
It's going to be fun watching what happens with the new round of gTLDs.
I certainly hope that lousy web programmers start feeling the hot breath
of pissed off people who have just spent a gazillion dollars on their
new TLD just to have their shiny new ".whatever" emails be considered
'invalid' by some idiotic PHP form validation code.
