Can you just mark your email field as unique and that way it will only allow one entry? Or are there more complicated requirements?

does this query previous entries? thats the biggest issue. If a user had [email protected] and comes back to the form 3 days later and tries [email protected] again.. i would want to post a message "you have already signed up"

also.. I cant believe i missed that check box. (slaps forehead)

Yes I believe it does.
