Tried the ValidateEmailAddress() method to no avail. I tried my yahoo and gmail account as well as my current work email address and got back : Resolving host name "gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com"... Connecting to host address "126.96.36.199"... Failed. Resolving host name "alt2.gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com"... Connecting to host address "188.8.131.52"... Failed. Resolving host name "gsmtp183.google.com"... Connecting to host address "184.108.40.206"... Failed. Resolving host name "gsmtp183.google.com"... Connecting to host address "220.127.116.11"... Failed. Resolving host name "gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com"... Connecting to host address "18.104.22.168"... Failed. -1

It seems your machine is not able to connect to Yahoo and Gmail SMTP servers. It is very likely that there is a firewall in the middle blocking SMTP connections at at least to those networks. If you are not sure, ask your system administrator.

First off, thanks for the effort, I can use this functionality.
My site is hosted by Yahoo, and they have disabled the fsockopen and pfsockopen functions... Any idea how to implement the same functionality by NOT using the fsockopen function?

Most of what the class does relies on being able to establish an emulated SMTP connection to the e-mail address SMTP server.
The class also validates the domain address checking the DNS but you do not need the whole class for that, just call GetDNSRR function.
If your hosting is that crippled, maybe you need to try a better hosting service.
