    Bit of a pain, but instead of the javascript back you could link directly to the page and re-populate it with your hidden values.

    I'd suggest using Javascript email syntax validation. That way, the user can't continue when he hits submit. It's not 100% foolproof (JS-disabled browsers), but surely good for 99% of regular users.
