What am I missing? Thanks!

I have this:

def find_emails(str): return re.findall(r'[-\w\d+.]@[-\w\d.]+', str)

sets_email.py
import re

# Example:
# >>> find_email("kenneth.love@teamtreehouse.com, @support, ryan@teamtreehouse.com, test+case@example.co.uk")
# ['kenneth@teamtreehouse.com', 'ryan@teamtreehouse.com', 'test@example.co.uk']

def find_emails(str):
  return (re.findall(r'[-\w\d+.]@[-\w\d.]+', str))

Hi,

Looks like you're missing the '+' sign after your first group, before the @.

Thanks Thomas! I've tried that before and after you've mentioned it, but all I've got is this:

Bummer! Didn't get the right output. Got [], expected ['kenneth@teamtreehouse.com', 'andrew+gotcha@teamtreehouse.com', 'exa.mple@example.co.uk'].

Thanks again Thomas. I've just passed the challenge. I think it was some kind of white space somewhere in my code.
