    The below script works well EXCEPT for it won't check if the email address has already been registered. Could someone take a look and let me know what I'm doing wrong? If I try to register an email that's already been registered, it still shows a success message. Thanks in advance for any help:

     *                             add_email.php
     *                            -------------------
     *   begin                : Thursday, 12 April, 2007
     *   owner                : - Dave
     *   email                :

    Why not contact the author of the script listed at the top of it?
