I would like email fields in forms to be validated to look like an email, please.

Yes please, we would like help here too! Selecting “email” field doesn’t mean that the entry submitted via form has to be a valid email.

Hi;
You can consider using an easy to install JS code: Email Validation JavaScript Widget - DeBounce

Yeah, this is such a bummer, why have form software and email field format, if the form doesn’t actually do anything from setting that field type. Seems like a relatively easy push for Airtable to implement.

I feel like Airtable Forms are very much second-class citizens, in that they just need a tad bit more work to make Airtable a great alternative to most form software. But it hasn’t seen any update in years.
