In all PHP Versions except 5.3.2 the following Script will return false for FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL while FILTER_SANITIZE_EMAIL does NOTHING to the input email.

While the Provided email is a valid return path, i excpect that VALIDATE_EMAIL will return the string provided and not false.

Test script:

$email = '';
var_dump(\filter_var($email, FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL));
var_dump($email === \filter_var($email, FILTER_SANITIZE_EMAIL));

Expected result:
string(89) ""

Actual result:
