this line worked just fine on 3.0.12 or maybe it was .10 - don't remember

if(!eregi("^[^@[:space:]]+@([[:alnum:]\-]+\.) +[[:alnum:]][[:alnum:]][[:alnum:]]?$", $email) )

now gets me :

Warning: Bad escape sequence: \- in /home/httpd/html/emanate/mailinglist.php3 on line 5

We are sorry, but can not support PHP 3 related problems anymore.
Momentum is gathering for PHP 5, and we think supporting PHP 3 will
lead to a waste of resources which we want to put into getting PHP 5
ready. Ofcourse PHP 4 will will continue to be supported for the
forseeable future.

use double \\ ?
