Any alphanumeric string, that is divided by an underscore (_), hyphen (-), or period, followed by the @ sign and an alphanumeric string, a period, and one of the domain-name extensions listed. Symantec Messaging Gateway cannot validate top-level domains of two letters, where one or both letters are uppercase. It does, however, validate uppercase three-letter domains. For example, it does not validate harry@hogwarts.edu.UK or bilbo@canterbury.ac.Nz. However, Symantec Messaging Gateway validates mister_smith @senate.GOV. |

Any grouping of four-digit numbers that start with three 1-, 2-, or 3-digit numbers less than 256 separated by periods. A CIDR address range can be indicated by a 1- or a 2-digit number from 0 to 32 inclusive and separated from the initial IP address by a forward slash. Symantec Messaging Gateway does not parse any terminal characters other than a 1- or 2-digit numeral that is preceded by a forward slash. Thus, 10.113.14.10a is not interpreted as a valid IP address. |

Symantec Messaging Gateway recognizes European-style numbers, where the comma serves as decimal point and periods separate groups of three digits. Fractions must be preceded by a numeral, including zero (0) if necessary, and expressed as a decimal. Although numbers 8 digits or smaller with commas are supported, Symantec recommends that you use tab- or pipe-delimited data-source text files that contain numbers using commas. The use of the tab or pipe delimiters avoids the possibility that commas in numbers are mistaken as field delimiters. Numbers that are larger than eight digits are interpreted as of type WORD. |

Symantec Messaging Gateway recognizes European-style numbers, where the comma serves as decimal point and periods separate groups of three digits. Fractions of a percent must be preceded by a numeral, including zero (0) if necessary, and expressed as a decimal. Only the numbers that are adjacent to the percent sign (%) (no space) are regarded as valid percentages. The following patterns do not produce a match: .32 32 percent 32per 5 3/4% |
