This is a custom field for multiple emails separated by comma. Original code was replaced by code from Django documentation: http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/forms/validation/ (MultiEmailField) so i'm not the author of the code, but just put it here to replace an outdated solution.

Uses code from mksoft comment http://www.djangosnippets.org/snippets/1093/

Usage:

class SomeForm(forms.Form):
    emails = MultipleEmailsField()

diverman (on April 26, 2009):

Do you store multiple emails in one database column?

#

spanasik (on April 28, 2009):

No, it's required for user input, when multiple emails can be entered into one form field.

spanasik - the solution in the docs is identical but is missing the email_re here

Remember that email_re has moved from django.form.fields to django.core.validators
