    Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for asking. You need to use a special JotForm feature called Show/Hide Conditions in order to make this happen. I took the initiative of creating this for you in your form.

    For more information, please read this tutorial: http://www.jotform.com/help/57-Conditional-Logic-on-Forms

    We hope you find this information useful. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you and have fun using JotForm!

    Hi Andrew

    You can actually fine tune the condition a bit by having the submission button remain hidden until the email address contains both an "at" symbol and a dot, since all email addresses must contain those characters. It's not a foolproof solution, as the user could well opt to place the dot before the "at" symbol and the submission button would still be revealed. Then again, the form could not be submitted with the email address like that because it would fail JotForm's default email validation test:
