    Hi Paddy,


    Thanks for using JotForm,

    You can validate an email address by clicking on textbox element, then click on validation above and select email, check my Screenshot:



    But, if you mean validating fake emails or unregistered emails then it is not possible for JotForm. Thank you!

    Hi Idarktech,

    Thank you for your reply to my question. I think I have asked the wrong
    question! What I want to know is there any way I can require users to input
    their email address twice so that they can be compared to try to eliminate
    typographic errors?

    Thank you,

    Hi peddyherbert,

    Unfortunately this feature is not available with JotForm. You can try to edit the form's full source code and add necessary verification codes using Javascript or PHP. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
