Default Chapter 15 - EMail Validation

Ok..if currency aint your thing how about EMail Validation? :) On the register.asp page (code below), how do we make sure that only an email address is entered. we only need a very basic one - one that makes sure there is some text followed by '@' followed by some more text and a '.' ending with text eg 'com'. If for example TEST@TEST.COM is entered we want the system to run as normal, but if Test is entered, we want a message to read please enter a valid email address. Much ike the message is shown for the password validation.

Thank you for any help you can offer:)

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
  function VerifyData()
    if (document.frmUser.Password.value != document.frmUser.VerifyPassword.value)
      alert ("Your passwords do not match - please reenter");
      return false;
      return true;

Do you want this to happen server side or client side?

Try Google by searching for "validate e-mail address". You'd be surprised by the number of useful links.....
