I would use an OnChange or OnBlur event on the email input field  to call a 
javascript function to do that job


<input name="email" type="text" size="30" onchange="my_javascript_function()">


<input name="email" type="text" size="30" onblur="my_javascript_function()">

I've put the 2 event definitions below incase one is more appropriate than 
the other :)

The onchange event is fired when the user commits changes to an <INPUT> 
element. The event does not fire when the actual changes are made, but when 
the user 'commits' them, by either submitting the form, or by 'blurring' 
(i.e. removing focus from) the element. Any code using the onchange event 
is executed before the onblur event (see above), if the change is commited 
by the user removing the focus.

When the referenced <INPUT> element loses the users focus, the onblur event 
is fired. On the fly form validation can make use of the onblur event to 
check form elements as the user is entering information.

I hope this helps
