  • form mail email validation?

    Okay i am a php newbie and have been following tutorials on creating my own form mail for one of my sites... i have everything except email validation. How do i add email validation to the below script
    PHP Code:
    <?php

    $form 
    "
    <FORM METHOD=\"post\" ACTION=\"
    $PHP_SELF\">
    <p>Name: 
    <input type=\"text\" name=\"name\" value=\"
    $name\" size=\"30\">
    <br>
    Email: 
    <input type=\"text\" name=\"email\" value=\"
    $email\" size=\"30\">
    <br>
    </p>
    <p> 
    <textarea name=\"comments\" rows=\"12\" cols=\"45\" wrap=\"virtual\">
    $comments</textarea>
    </p>
    <p>                    
    <INPUT TYPE=\"hidden\" NAME=\"action\" VALUE=\"check\">
    <INPUT TYPE=\"reset\" VALUE=\"reset\">
    <INPUT TYPE=\"submit\" NAME=\"submit\" VALUE=\"Submit\"></p>
    </FORM>
    "
    ;

    if (
    $action != "check") {
    // show form
    echo "$form";
    } elseif (
    $action == "check") {

    $send "yes";

    if (
    $name == "") {
    $name_error "<br><b>Please enter name...</b><br>";
    $send "no";
    }

    if (
    $email == "") {
    $email_error "<b>Please enter email...</b><br>";
    $send "no";
    }

    if (
    $comments == "") {
    $comments_error "<b>Please enter a message...</b><br>";
    $send "no";
    }

    if (
    $send == "yes") {
    // okay to send
    $msg "Email sent from domain.com form\n\n";
    $msg .= "Sender's Name:    $name\n";
    $msg .= "Sender's Email:   $email\n";
    $msg .= "Message:          $comments\n";

    $to "form@domain.com";
    $subject "Contact Form";
    $mailheaders "From: domain.com <> \n";
    $mailheaders .= "Reply: $email\n\n";
    // send email
    mail($to$subject$msg$mailheaders);
    echo 
    "<br><br>Mail has been sent. ";

    $msg2 "Email sent from domain.com form\n\n";
    $msg2 .= "Sender's Name:    $name\n";
    $msg2 .= "Sender's Email:   $email\n";
    $msg2 .= "Message:          $comments\n";
    $confirm "Copy of form email sent: domain.com";
    $mailheaders2 "From: domain.com <> \n";
    $mailheaders2 .= "Reply: $to\n\n";
    mail($email$confirm$msg2$mailheaders2);
    echo 
    "A copy has also been sent to your email";

    } elseif (
    $send == "no") {
    echo 
    "$name_error";
    echo 
    "$email_error";
    echo 
    "$comments_error";
    echo 
    "$form";
     }
    }
    ?>

    I swear to God I saw this somewhere on php.net's docs, it was contributed by a user, for it seems like they've emptied ALL of the comments. It is just me??

    See:
    http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.strstr.php
    No comments on strstr()??

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

      PHP Code:
        if(!eregi("^[a-z0-9\._-]+@+[a-z0-9\._-]+\.+[a-z]{2,3}$"$email)) {
          
      $email_error "Enter a valid email";
          
      $send "no";
        } 
      this should help hopefully it checks the username is valid that a @ is present and the domain is a valid format.
