I was wondering if anyone knows of a good server side email validation useing asp that does all the normal checks i.e. @ the .com but also checks when people put something like email@example.com where the first word is the same as the second word? another example is firstname.lastname@example.org

This regular expression would work pretty good. I can build it into a function if you are unfamiliar with regexp.
As for making sure the mailbox and the domain aren't the same, I think writing a thing in asp would be the easiest.
You could do something like:
If aryMail(0)=Mid(aryMail(1),1,InstrRev(aryMail(1),".")-1) Then
<% If SameMail_Domain("email@example.com") Then %>
<p>The e-mail is the same!</p>
<% End If %>

I think this is Whammys stuff, but it really shows off regular expressions really well.
(This is whammys stuff, I only post it as a matter of reference)
