    Hello,

    If you are refering to E-mail field from JotForm Quick tools, there is only about 2 options that implies to what you were asking -- validation and email confirmation. I could not find email verification property though.

    As for the purpose:

    1. validation - This property checks the format of the email address entry on the field. It should  follow this entry; username@domain.com or accountname@domain.com

    2. Confirmation - Add an additional entry field to repeat the same email address for correctness.

    Hope this answers your inquiry. 

    Thanks.

    Is there a way to have the 2 email field match up to each other before submitting ( i.e. if one entry is wrong they have to fix it before it submits the email address ).  This is very common on the internet when filling out forms.

    @CJRoth You can implement a double check (user must input 2 times his email) by using Field confirmation widget.

    You can also use this widget E-mail Validator - Verification widgets.

    Both widgets are great at what they do and you can use either of them or both on your jotform.

    You can see here How to Add a Widget to your Form.

    If you have any further questions feel free to let us know.

    Thanks
