    Unfortunately, this is not possible to accomplish using the form builder.

    On this scenario, you could use the API to lookup if the email has been entered already in the form and a custom script in order to make the redirection in case the email address is found.

    You should also check this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/213-Send-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page to see how you can pass the email value to a PHP script that you can use to make the validation and redirection.
