Using a single line of text for email addresses are tricky, as there’s no checks. If you use column validation it can at least do a couple of checks for you. See how we can validate whether an address includes “@”, the “@” shouldn’t be in the beginning, no spaces, full stop after the “@” and at least one character after the “@” before the full stop. You can find the formula below the video:
ISERROR(FIND(” “, [Email],1)),
ISERROR(FIND(“@”,[Email], FIND(“@”, [Email],2)+1)),
IF(ISERROR(FIND(“.”, [Email], FIND(“@”, [Email],2)+2)),
FIND(“.”, [Email], FIND(“@”, [Email],2)+2) < LEN([Email])
