From manual page:
If we want to check email address like "11111/" - it's will be true. From 5.6 to 7.1

Test script:
if (filter_var('11111/xxxx@yyyy.zz', FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)) {
    echo 'true';

Forward slashes are actually allowed in the username portion of an email address, as are other uncommonly used symbols like # ? { }.
