I need your help please.

I'm trying to validate an email address

function ValidateData() {
        var StartCreateDate = $('#FromCreatedDate').val();
        var EndCreateDate = $('#ToCreatedDate').val();
        var StartMigrationDate = $('#FromMigrationDate').val();
        var EndMigrationDate = $('#ToMigrationDate').val();
        var SendToEmail = $('#SendEmailTo').val();
        if ((StartCreateDate != null && EndCreateDate != null) && (StartCreateDate > EndCreateDate)) {
            alert("From create date must be greater than to create date")
            return false;
        if ((StartMigrationDate != null && EndMigrationDate != null) && (StartMigrationDate > EndMigrationDate)) {
            alert("From migration date must be greater than to migration date")
            return false;
        if (SendToEmail "doesn't have the correct format")  //Here I want to validate my email address $('#SendEmailTo').val();
            alert("Email format is incorrect")
            return false;

        return true;
