cheers, thanks Aaron.
I guess my mental parsing was to process the (\w|\@|\.|\-) which == 1
char, and then add the + , whereas the correct parsing is to regard
the (\w|\@|\.|\-) and + as inseperable.

hehe yeah I know ... also accepts @@@ and --- and ....
It's not terribly crucial where it is, tho - it gets checked properly later. :-)
