ASP email form validation

I have an ASP contact form that works, it emails through the info submitted. I now need it to validate.

here is the form:

<form method=Post action=get.asp>
  <table width="386" border="0" align="center">
    <tr>
      <td width="158">Name</td>
      <td width="218"><input type="text" name="t1" size="30"></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>Company</td>
      <td><input type="text" name="t2" size="30"></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>Phone</td>
      <td><input type="text" name="t3" size="30"></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>Email</td>
      <td><input type="text" name="t4" size="30"></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td><p>Country</p>        </td>
      <td><input type="text" name="t5" size="30"></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td valign="top">Enquiry</td>
      <td><textarea name="t6" cols="35" rows="6"></textarea></td>
    </tr>
  </table>
  <p align="center">
    <input type=submit value=Submit>
  </p>
  </form>



and here is the get.asp file:

<%
Dim t1name,t1,t2name,t2,t3name,t3,t4name,t4,t5name,t5,t6name,t6
t1name = "Name"
t1 = Request.Form("t1")
t2name = "Company"
t2 = Request.Form("t2")
t3name = "Phone"
t3 = Request.Form("t3")
t4name = "Email"
t4 = Request.Form("t4")
t5name = "Country"
t5 = Request.Form("t5")
t6name = "Enquiry"
t6 = Request.Form("t6")

Set JMail = Server.CreateObject("JMail.SMTPMail")
JMail.ServerAddress = "mail.site.com:25"
JMail.AddRecipient "sales@address.com"
JMail.Sender = "sales@address.com"
JMail.Subject = "Form Submission"
JMail.Body = t1name & vbcrlf&_
t1 & vbcrlf&_
t2name & vbcrlf&_
t2 & vbcrlf&_
t3name & vbcrlf&_
t3 & vbcrlf&_
t4name & vbcrlf&_
t4 & vbcrlf&_
t5name & vbcrlf&_
t5 & vbcrlf&_
t6name & vbcrlf&_
t6
JMail.Execute

Response.Redirect "http://www.site.com.au/default.asp"

%>

(I have changed the email addresses and web addresses as they are clients)

Hello aarondarr,

where do you want to validate at server or at client?

Hello

Best way is to add client side validators.. ie in Javascript..
==============================================
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JAVASCRIPT">
function formValidate(frm)
{
   if(frm.t1.value != "")
   {
      alert("Please enter a value for name.")
      frm.t1.focus();
      return false;
   }
}
</SCRIPT>
<form method=Post action=get.asp onSubmit="return formValidate()">

=============================================================

Above code will give u a basic idea how it need to be implemented..

Regards
Neeraj
