The only way to truly validate the email address is to send an email to that address and request the user to confirm by clicking on a unique link (or entering a confirmation code)Remember, if the user’s intention is to enter an invalid email address, she can do it so easily whether you have the most tough validation or not.
Form validation is the process of checking that a form has been filled in correctly before it is processed.
For example, if your form has a box for the user to type their email address, you might want your form handler to check that they've filled in their address before you deal with the rest of the form.
Some, but not all, browsers will recognise and enforce this: The advantage of the HTML5 form validation is that it happens before our Java Script is called, displays instructions and points the user to the relevant element.
I'm trying to use this link as my resource: understand how it works for textboxes, but how do you make it detect form validation for checkboxes?

MUSEUM .travel, .international or even .vermögensberatung For example all the following email addresses are valid: Source The sad truth is that despite the complex regular expression validation, the email may not be existing, so can still be invalid for practical purposes.
In its simplest form like this: [email protected], the atoms can contain 1. Most email validation checks assumes that the top level domain can have up to 4 characters. You have just validated the format – not its existence.
