        var OverRide = false;

        function setOverRide(){
            OverRide = true;

        function isValidEmail(Value){
            var emailPattern = /^(([^<>()[\]\\.,;:\s@\"]+(\.[^<>()[\]\\.,;:\s@\"]+)*)|(\ ".+\"))@((\[[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\])|(([a-zA -Z\-0-9]+\.)+[a-zA-Z]{2,}))$/;
            return     emailPattern.test(Value);

        function CheckEmails(){

            if (OverRide)
                return true;

            returnVal = true;
            $('.requiresEmail').each(    function () {
                if (!isValidEmail($(this).val())){
                    $(this).css('background-color', '#f1c7c4');
                    returnVal = false;
                } else
                    $(this).css('background-color', '#fff');

            return returnVal;
