Varun, Although I am uncertain of the specifics in regards to dreamweaver, during your server side validation of the form you would check for existing records using the supplied email address. Then, if you found that email address already exists in the database you could output a pretty page telling the user. Basically, you want to ensure the 'validness' of your data before inputting it into the database rather then trying to rely on a thrown error from the database. Hope this helps.
