Default Cannot stop php

The check works but it runs the contact.php which I don't want it to do if js shows a popup window.
function validate()
       if (document.forms[0].Email.value == "")
               alert("User Name is a required field. Please fill in your User Name.");
               return false;
       return true;
<form action="contact.php" method="post" name="Contact" id="Contact" onsubmit="return validate();">
<input name="Email" type="text" class="form_input" id="Email" size="34">
<input name="Submit" type="submit" value="Submit">

You might be right however, I found this site http://www.freeformmaker.com/ (after spending hours looking for code only to find a simply google for "free form generator" gave me what I wanted!). It works perfectly, I made one preview with all types of form, customised it a bit, then made a template and am very pleased with the result. The auto response didn't work for me, neither the text file generation but the rest all works perfect. It's html/php/css mix, totally styleable.
