    is there anyway where i can validate if a form has been submited by the email ? my problem is to avoid duplicate entries for the same email.

    Hi there,

    Sorry, that would require the form to lookup a database of existing submissions before it was allowed to be submitted itself.  The only way to do that would be to download the full source for the form, and write your own ajax code to lookup the address.  You would also need to host the page on your own server.  i'm afraid that it is a big job and I would recommend getting a developer to do it for you.  if you do decide to try it let us know and we will do what we can to guide you through it.

    Thanks,

    Daniel
