Email filed validation

Hi Every one,

I've an issue with email validation.we have a free quiz on one of our website. to access that quiz user have to submit his/her name and email .then only he will get redirected to quiz page where he has to answer 10 question to get his happiness score.

Now here our pain is users are submitting false and non existing email s like bla...bla..@gmail.com , @hotmail.com . so is there any way to check whether the email is actually existent and valid ? . the form that we used were built on contact form 7 plugin (wordpress)

Any suggestions ?

There is a Contact Form 7 email validation plugin that should do what you want. It sends a 'verify your email address' email to the listed address which requires a response from the addressee before validating the address.
