Email checks are not strict enough..

I'm getting a bunch of bounced messages when users enter bad email
We should do stricter checking. Email::Valid supports this.
We need to install Net::DNS, and we need to modify the join callback and
the formmail callback to use the new Email::Valid features..
Tom, can you have a crack at this. Should be simple...
This is done as requested. The Net::DNS modules are in cvs under lib/
I've implemented the checks by adding the parameter 'mxcheck => 1' to the
call in join/callback.apm.
Please note that I'm not sure how much of a good idea this is, because it
*significantly* slows response time when the user submits.
This is not live yet, just on webdev.
