regex validation: valid matches not found

I'm trying to use a regex to validate the format (not the content!) of email addresses. The best regex if found for this so far is
which I've tested using

Strings which produce matches using this tester fail validation when I use the same pattern as an item-level validation on an Apex page.

I know that there are some different regex dialects out there, so maybe that's the problem...

Can anybody help out with an explanation - or even a fix :) ?

Many thanks
