All looked pretty straightforward and cleanly done.

We might want to further tighten 6/7 to verify user-supplied (i.e. non
default) e-mail for sanity, as I agree with the comment below --- lines of
that patch.

Also the check might want to be further tightened in the RFC 822/2822/5322
sense, but getting it correct will open a huge can of worms; I think the
check in 6/7 is a good place to stop, at least for now.
