Hi Srikanth,

Thank u soo much for the quick response

I tried like below but still it saves the record, Am i using the right criteria?

CONTAINS(Email, "@hotmail.com,@hotmail.co.uk") && RecordTypeId  = "012D0000000BaFA"

The record type id is because i want to apply this only for one contact form.

Many Thanks in advance
