Trim a validation rule?

I have a form that has an email field.  I have a validation rule of:

Is Null Or ((Like "*?@?*.?*") And (Not Like "*[ ,;]*"))

to help ensure the email is entered fairly accurately.  For the most part it works great.  However if a user pastes text into the field that has a space at the start of the text the validation rule fails.

Is there a way to incorporate trim into the validation rule or perhaps run after update VBA code to validate the form and trim it instead?
