Summary17518: Non-ascii characters in email addresses
DescriptionCurrently LS allows for example jori.mäntysalo@tuni.fi as a participant email, even if ä is not an ASCII character. Theoretically it might work, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_email. In reality it does not.

I suggest either disabling non-ascii characters in participant email, or having a setting for disabling/enabling them.
TagsNo tags attached.

No reason to disable if it's allowed.

Maybe in some country it's used, or in some company .

Who know ?

A plugin can be great !

I have never seen this kind on internationalized email in use. And what's worse, it seems to break some MS email servers badly.

True, I would blame MS too. But in reality we just can't ignore MS, as it is currently so widely used.

PHPMailer supports IDN but not EAI, so we might want to at least force the local part to be ASCII only
