Hello,  I want to create a javascript that will present an alert box if the 
drop down menu (select) contains nothing ("").  I created the following 
javascript, please let me know why it is not working.

<!-- Begin

function emailselect() {

var selectemail = document.forms.validation.recipient.value;

if (selectemail == "")
	alert("Please select a recipient.");
	return false;
	return true;

//  End -->

Here is the html:

    <form name="validation" action="FormMail.pl" method="POST" 
onSubmit="return (checkrequired(this) && checkbae() && emailselect());">

and also:

<select name="recipient">
<option value="">-- Select --</option>
<option value="one at one.com">one</option>
<option value="two at two.com">two</option>
<option value="three at three.com">three</option>

Thank You,
