I have a variable that contains e-mail adresses. I would like to find a
way to drop observations that does not contain valid email adresses.
There should be a condition that the string contains one '@', the
exsistence of period, and two or three characters following the period,
and no empty spaces.

I've tried the archives but can't find anything there. Any ideas? 

Best wishes,
Alexander Severinsen
