Regex to match email addresses

The “official” fool-proof regex to match email addresses known as RFC 5322:

| "(?:[\x01-\x08\x0b\x0c\x0e-\x1f\x21\x23-\x5b\x5d-\x7f]
| \\[\x01-\x09\x0b\x0c\x0e-\x7f])*")
@ (?:(?:[a-z0-9](?:[a-z0-9-]*[a-z0-9])?\.)+[a-z0-9](?:[a-z0-9-]*[a-z0-9])?
| \[(?:(?:25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.){3}
| \\[\x01-\x09\x0b\x0c\x0e-\x7f])+)

A more practical implementation of RFC 5322 if we omit the syntax using double quotes and square brackets. It will still match 99.99% of all email addresses in actual use today:
