New to Teradata Help with data type

I found a document on this site that shows various data types, however I do not see phone or email related data types. Can anyone point me to how I set up this type of datatype?

A phone or email is simply a VarChar with some added validation rules.
Which DBMS has built in dataypes like that?

Access lets you do text and then you have to format it but was not sure if teradata was different. So, I will Google validation rules to see how to set up validation.

If you check the phone formats of each country, you will see some formats and some countries have quite a number :) . I don't think any DBMS will resort to using phone as a datatype.
