Why do I get an error message? If I enter the same code in my IDE, I get the desired result.

Error Message: Bummer: Didn't get the right output. Got None, expected ['kenneth@teamtreehouse.com', 'andrew+gotcha@teamtreehouse.com', 'exa.mple@example.co.uk'].

import re

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

# 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']

Hi Lucia,

The issue is that you have wrapped your regex function inside of a print function. The print function returns None. If you remove the print function, your code will work.

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