So i have a page where the user selects a name from a drop down and this populates a text box with the users email address , there are also values that are free form to where the user can enter in there own email address. So to help with validation i put a regular expresssion validator and a call out extender to let the user know if they typed in the email address  incorrectly. So this works fine and if the user clicks submit it correctly pops up a message over the incorrect text box. So if there are more than one text box with an issue can i have multple extenders show? what also seems to happen is that only the first text shows up as an error when i click submit so i fix that one, any subsequent boxes will not display an error but the page will not submit.

here is what i have for aspx code
