php regular expression problem - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

Hi, I've got just a small problem, it's probably not very complex but I'm not very experienced with regular expression stuff. I just need to detect email addresses in a string. I know that the emails already in there will be valid, so it just has to detect them, not do any validation, so a fairly naive solution would probably work. I've tried a few things, but to no avail so far. Any clues? :) thanks Rob...

    Default php regular expression problem

    Hi,

    I've got just a small problem, it's probably not very complex but I'm not
    very experienced with regular expression stuff. I just need to detect email
    addresses in a string. I know that the emails already in there will be
    valid, so it just has to detect them, not do any validation, so a fairly
    naive solution would probably work. I've tried a few things, but to no avail
    so far.

    Any clues? :)

    thanks

    No worries, found something :) If anyone's interested, this finds an email
    address in a string:

    '/[_a-z0-9-]+(\.[_a-z0-9-]+)*)[a-z0-9-]+(\.[a-z0-9-]{2,})+/'
