    Default Email Validation

    I saw on this board about email validation. Looking for a @ and a . in the email to validate it. What if you wanted to send an email to the person as validation. They must click on a link within the email to finish validation. I have seen this done before, just not sure how they do it. I know how to send out an email from ASP. The question is, what would you send that could validate it? Would you send a special key in the link back to the site. Keep in mind this should all be automated. Once clicked, it goes to a web page and finishes the validation and adds the user to the database.
