Using the HTML type attribute we can easily validate an email. But this technique works only when we submit our HTML form by clicking the submit button. That means if you submit your form using javascript this technique will not work.

 <form action="#">
    <label for="Email">Email*</label><br><br>

    <input  type="submit">
