jemhAddresseeRegexps required ?

The expression you have is a broken regexp.  In Regexp, dot '.' means any character, star '*' means any number of the preceding character.  to match anything use (without quotes) .*

He might actually want to ensure that there are at least two dots in it, in which case ".*\..*\..*" would get you there. But the basic idea of this answer, that the field takes a formal regular expression as opposed to simple filename-style wildcard globbing looks correct to me.
