Dear Experts,

Running into an issue with Internet explorer. I am doing form validation using Jquery. Most of the checks are standard like "required, min length, max length, email format etc"- All these error messages are showing up fine in all browsers.

Now just for the email field, apart from the email format, I'm also checking in the database to see if the email already exists - and if it does - show an error message to user.

In FireFox,Chrome - if the email address exists - it comes back and displays error saying -"Email id is already registered"

But in Internet Explorer - nothin happens - no error message is shown and the form just stays and nothing happens.

Any idea what this issue could be - I'm attaching the code below

thanks for your help
<script language="javascript">
		// Setup de dialog box
		$('#dialog').dialog('option', 'title', 'Register');
		$('#dialog').dialog('option', 'width', 340);
		$('#dialog').dialog('option', 'buttons', {
			'Send': function(){
			'Cancel': function(){

		// validate the form
			submitHandler: function(){
				$.post(baseUrl + '/register/register', $('#frmRegister').serialize(), function(data){
			rules: {
				password: {
					rangelength: [8, 16]
				password2: {
					equalTo: "#password"
				email: {
					remote: baseUrl + '/register/check-email'
			messages: {
				email: {
					remote: jQuery.format("{0} is already registered.")
			onkeyup: false,
			onfocusout: false,
			focusCleanup: true,
			focusInvalid: false,
			debug: false

<form name="frmRegister" id="frmRegister" class="frm" method="post" action="<?php echo $this->baseUrl(); ?>/register/register">
	<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="<?php echo $this->getRequest()->getParam('redirect'); ?>"/>
	<input type="hidden" name="redirect_type" value="<?php echo $this->getRequest()->getParam('redirect_type'); ?>"/>
		<legend>Acount details</legend>

		<label for="name">Full name</label>
		<input type="text" name="name" id="name" class="required"/>
		<label for="name">Mobile Number</label>
		<input type="text" name="mobile_number" id="mobile_number" class="required"/>

		<label for="email">Email</label>
		<input type="text" name="email" id="email" class="required email"/>

		<label for="password">Password</label>
		<input type="password" name="password" id="password" class="required"/>

		<label for="password2">Retype password</label>
		<input type="password" name="password2" id="password2" class="required"/>
