Jquery No Email Verification

Hello experts!

Here is what I'm trying to accomplish. In the name field of my form, I do not want someone to be able to submit e-mails. I got something to work, but it doesn't work 100% of the time.

The way it is supposed to work is if someone puts an email address in the name field, a box below the name field will appear and say 'No Emails Allowed'. When you first come to the page, the no emails allowed shows up no matter what. When you refresh the page and something is already in the field, then it "works". Can you help me?

I have attached the relevant HTML code below and the Jquery code in the code field. Here is the link to the development form that I am working on: http://dev.mytucker.com/dev/devForm/decals.htm. This will allow you to see the full code.

   <td><label for="Name_A">Agent Name: </label></td>
    <td><input id="Name_A" name="Name_A" type="text" /></td>                                
//Start the No Email Address in the Name Fields    
    var hasError = false;
    var emailReg = /^([\w-\.]+@([\w-]+\.)+[\w-]{2,4})?$/;

    var Name_A = $("#Name_A");
    var invalidName_A = $("#invalidName_A");
    var emailaddressVal_A = $("#Name_A").val();
    function validateNoEmail() {
        if (emailReg.test(emailaddressVal_A)) {
            invalidName_A.text("No Emails allowed");
            hasError = true;
