#43107 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

wp_create_user() incorrectly errors on emails without a . / tld

According to the latest HTML5 specification the following examples counts as correctly formatted email:

email@localhost OR susan@domain *


When using wp_create_user() with an email formatted as above the following error is produced:

empty_user_login, Cannot create a user with an empty login name.

Ideally, no error is produced and the user account is created.


aside: not sure correct way to describe -- no . or no tld -- eitherway, hope example displays what i mean.
