    ibleedpink,

    Make the E-mail field a REQUIRED fied. 
    The E-mail address field always check validity of an E-mail address.

    Hi,

    You can also enable Email Confirmation to make it sure that emails are correctly typed and all matched. This also helps to prevent problems with bad addresses.

    To do that, simply follow this steps below:

    1. Add Email Tool to your form, its under Quick Tools

    2. Right click the email field and select Show Properties

    3. On the properties window, set Confirmation to YES

    4. You can also rename the word under "Confirmation Hint Example"

    That's it. Hope this helps. Thanks.

    @ibleedpink,

    As idarktech suggested, that should do it.

    also, check this same suggestion from previous thread.


    You should choose Confirmation =  Yes to use this feature.
    You can change Confirmation Message on Edit Fom Warnnigs



     

    We hope this help you.

    Let me also inform you that JotForm does not have the capability to validate if an email address is valid (active) or not (fake/not working). It does, however, have the ability to check if the text being entered is in the correct format, i.e. with an "@" before the "." like user@email.com.

    Thanks.
