Solution :

I have gone through your question and your code. Answer to your question is very simple.

I am giving the solution to you in the form of below code.

if(!filter_var($_POST['email'], FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)) {
    exit('This is Invalid email address'); // Please use your own error handling 
$select = mysqli_query($connectionID, "SELECT `email` FROM ` Register ` WHERE `email` = '".$_POST['email']."'") or exit(mysqli_error($connectionID));
if(mysqli_num_rows($select)) {
    exit('This email is already in use');

Simply paste above code above your insert query.
