Simple Email Validation Plugin Question

I have tried this and it is not working; I have gone through it twice and still is not working. I lost the "@" validation along with not gaining text input validation. Here is the code I input.

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/validEmail.js"></script><script type="text/javascript">
    var $submit = $(".submit input");
    var $required = $(".required");
    function containsBlanks(){
    var blanks = $required.map(function(){return $(this).val() == "";});
    return $.inArray(true, blanks) != -1;

function requiredFilledIn(){
if(containsBlanks() || !$("#email").validEmail())

$("#form span").hide();
$("input, textarea").focus(function(){
//Check all required fields.
$("email").validEmail({on:"keyup", success:function(){$(this).next().removeClass("error").addClass("valid");
}, failure:function(){

Near the bottom of your code you don't have # in front of email. $("#email").validEmail...

That was it!. Thank you Jason.
