Base, the reason I believe for this is the current script that validates emails requires a '.com' before any extension, '.gr', and the Greeks don't have a '.com' it goes straight to the extension '.gr', and that's the issue.

The '@hotmail.com.gr' is what currently works, however the address doesn't have the '.com' part.
