all you can do is check the format of the email string. You cant check if the address exists and is working.

what you could do is send an email to the address they entered and include a link in that email with a querystring which would validate that user correctly

all you can do when validating an email address is look for an @ and then look for any illegal chars in the string

what scripting language are you using
