Is there a way to validate an email by checking it's existence?
As far as I know there is no way to see if an email is a valid one. (otherwise spammers would be in heaven). But there is a technique used to make sure somebody is using a real email. I dont know what your application is but lets say somebody is signing up to be a member on your site, or any sort of application. You will probably need to give them information after they hit submit. (username, password, receipt info....) any of these things you could display on the "confirmation page" but why do that. If they are using a fake email for whatever reason, you'll never know. Just send them their username, password etc. to their email. This keeps them honest. They must check their email to do anything else, therefore it must be valid
I agree having a confirmation process would be a good idea. Alot of sites will have the user click on a link in thier email before they are "offically confirmed". you can use java script however to make sure the user enters a properly formatted Email address.
Excellent! That really helped a lot because that was my next venture! Thanks.
