Yes, to an extent.

You could validate the entry to ensure that it contains no forbidden characters (spaces, commas etc) and satisfies other minimum requirements (contains one "@" character, etc).

It is not possible to actually check that the e-mail address is "real" without somehow checking with the mail server. This, if it is possible with FMP, would require the use of a plug-in.

>would require the use of a plug-in.

.. or the use of web services and XML

.. or a simple perl script using the Mail::Checkemail module

I do this using a perl cgi and XML/XSL import.

However, most mailservers nowadays do not allow for those checks anymore because of spammer's abuse.
