Have you ever needed to back up a client's remotely hosted MS SQL Database?

Select only records with valid e-mail addresses from a table

Ok, doing some hired gun work. The client wants the record set returned from a query to have only valid e-mails.

The gist includes fully working CFML that demonstrates this example.

The core of this is the isValid function. In this case it is used to validate an e-mail address

isValid('email', email) email, the second one, is a filed in the table.

The code also adds a column to the record set with QueryAddColumn and then does a query of queries to get only valid e-mail addresses

Some good comments, if you use underscore or mySQL...
Thanks Russ & Timothy Leach

SELECT `email`
FROM `users`
WHERE `email`
REGEXP '[A-Z0-9._%+-]+@[A-Z0-9.-]+\.[A-Z]{2,4}'
GROUP BY `email`

SQL Server would have to be something like:
WHERE email like '[a-z,0-9,_,-]%@[a-z,0-9,_,-]%.[a-z][a-z]%'
