Rolleyes how to check email username to know it is exist or not?

Good morning, I'm Jasin from Indonesia.
I'm currently make a web site using PHP "".

I have a service named konsultasi(consultation), which everyone can send me an email from my web site "".
I have a problem to detect an exist email and not existing email. I can check the domain like "".
but I can not check the user name like "andi" from "".

Is there any way that i can check the username from the email, weather it is exist or not existed?

Thank You before.

Hi, I am brazilian, sorry bad english.

It is imposible. You can use curl or fopen to see at gmail the disponibility of one username, but there are many services and sites of email.

The most usual way is send a confirmation email with a link to activate the account, like this forum. =]
