I have been looking for a regular expression for an asp.net textbox ('tbEmail') so that NO Hotmail or GMail addresses are allowed but have been unsuccessful. Please could an expert point me to something that will get the job done or supply some code to do the above?

Ok, does the syntax "/@hotmail|@gmail|@live\.|@googlemail/" work in an asp.net validation control?
 
I should have made the question clearer I want to check for valid email address but exclude gmale, hotmail etc.

Perhaps not with the / /

Remember to ask if it does NOT match then it is ok

Here is the vb.net code:
If (System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.IsMatch(sEmail, "@hotmail|@gmail|@live|@googlemail")) Then

                errorMessage.Text = "The following emails are not valid; Hotmail, GMail, Googlemail and MSN Live"

End If

you may want to add a dot to the @live

since it is only @live.com or @live.co.xx which is a new hotmail address
