ASP.net page not validating! C#

I have a simple web form. I want the form to email the results when the end user hits the submit button. I have accomplished this task, but when the form is submitted the form is no longer returning the error messages. I can now fill out the form however I want and it still emails the results. I can even submit it blank. Why is the form not validating? Thanx -  cfcoder

Tsrom, are you trying to access the form by clicking the back button? if you are try doing hard refresh Ctrl+f5, and post what happens. I can try debugging it tomorrow for you, unless someone else finds the problem. also do you have your form set to autopostback?

I would really appreciate your help with this issue gtvingo14. What is happening is I have completely lost the form validation. When I go to the page and submit the form blank, I no longer get an error message. I can basically fill out the form fields any way I want and it returns no error. when I remove the script for the system.web.mail the form validates perfectly. Thanx - Tsrom

Locally the form validates perfect. Its on the server that no errors are returned when the form is filled out incorrectly. It just submits blank. If I put QQQQQQQ in the email field, its not checking for valid email!

if you are paying for the hosting of your site, and we know that the site works fine localy it has to be their settings...tell them to look into it, I had similar problems resolved by calling our Hosting company, and telling them its on their end.

gtvingo14, would it be possible to host that form for a short while so I can see it validate. My hosting company say's its not on their end. I cant get this form to return error messages when the form is filled out incorrectly. It passes the form results in email, but will not return error messages!
