CSS3 E-mail form input type

I have a form and I'm using CSS3 to use the form input type "email". This seems to make sense since any browser that doesn't support it would default to text which is what I would otherwise use, however it does help with browsers that do support it. Firefox will check it's valid before the form can submit and iPhones will provide the E-mail keypad which I always find helpful.

I was storing an E-mail address and tried to change it but it wouldn't let me change anything after the "@" sign. Is this to do with using an "email" input type of is it likly to be something in my code.

If it's the code I'll post some but I'd like to check if it's the input type first.

Thanks.

I think it's becuase I was trying an address that doesn't exist to test it not realising quite how far the validation goes. When I tried a real address to changes it to, there was not problem.

i cannot imagine that this input type will be relevant when you cannot change something on the server - in case that is the problem as i understood it. what value does the serverside script for the e-mail address update receive? and how do you process it?
