Get cleaned and sanitized mail address with PHP | php

This example validates an email address from a POST request. This assumes the form field is called email and the method is post.

// //


// // 1) check if valid
$email = filter_input(INPUT_POST,'email', FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL);

if (!$email){
    die("Invalid email");
// // or whatever you want to do - probably return an AJAX error here

// // else $email = FILTER_SANITIZE_EMAIL // no need to sanitize if we validated it
