that depends on what kind of stuff you want to check in email. good start is detecting "@" and "." characters and also empty space " ". here's how you can do it:

function checkEmail(email) {
     if(email.indexOf("@")!=-1 && email.indexOf(".")!=-1 && email.indexOf(" ")!=-1) {
     alert("Specified email address is invalid");
     return false; }
     else alert("Good email address");

that should do it
