E12 - Review Email domain validation

This will review how the email address is validated wihtin SITS and implement a standard email address validation tool so that it will allow the new email address with the potential domain names of .scot and .london to be valid and stored within SITS.

Non attendance at exams needs to be recorded for Summer 14 and then be able to be used within UKBA monitoring.  This will be a simple solution to satisfy the immediate need.
