Issue/Introduction

In the UMP, Report Scheduler, when entering email addresses in a scheduled report if the email address contains a / character the box is highlighted in red and a message says the email address contains an invalid character.

i/[email protected] is considered an invalid email address because of the / character.

This email address is valid and works.  The report scheduler needs to updated to allow this character.  Can this be released as a hotfix?  



Cause

The email validator used by UIM does not allow for some special chacters such as /


Environment

Release : UIM 8.X and 9.x
Component : UIM - UMP_REPORTSCHEDULER

Resolution

We can not allow the forward slash in the email address.
Most Mail host like Gmail also doesn't allow forward slash in the local name or the domain name of the email id. 

The client will need to change his email address to work with this feature.

Please check screenshots provided.
