Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has any quick routines on validating e-mail addresses in VB, ie., checking there is one @, at least one '.', no spaces etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If strEmail like "*@*.*" and Instr(1,strEmail," ") = 0 Then
  'email seems valid
End If

If Len(email.Text) = 0 Then
    DoEvents
ElseIf Len(email.Text) > 0 Then
    v2 = (InStr(1, email.Text, "@", vbTextCompare))
    v1 = (InStr(1, email.Text, ".", vbTextCompare))
       
        If ((v2 > 0) And (v1 > 0)) Then
            DoEvents
        Else

            email.SetFocus
