Make sure that your form's onsubmit is set and returns the result of the validation. For example:
onsubmit="return f_Validate(this)"

Otherwise, could you post your code?

Good luck.

I put the CausesValidation="true" but that didnt work .. if I submit the form without entering anything this is the error I get
which is basically saying that the mail message can't be sent i.e. the form submitted blank

At least one of the From or Sender fields is required, and neither was found.

Line 208:' Send the Mail Message
Line 209:SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "mail.amsumash.com"
Line 210:SmtpMail.Send( objMailMessage )
