Revert of "Use PHP's own email validation routines"

This partially reverts commit 4235a08
which introduced a regression.

The PHP email validation rejects valid e-mail addresses with the form
user@hostname [1]. The PHPMailer accepts these, and furthermore it makes
sense to rely on the validation routine provided by the library we use
to send our emails.
