I'm afraid that the domain name for this web site has expired without
being registered. The web site no longer exists, and neither does the
email address that you quote.
I looked up the details on the domain name veternet.com on the Whois
search at Internic http://www.internic.net/whois.html and found the
"Domain Name: VETERNET.COM
Registrar: NETWORK SOLUTIONS, INC.
Whois Server: whois.networksolutions.com
Referral URL: http://www.networksolutions.com
Name Server: B.NS.INTERLAND.NET
Name Server: C.NS.INTERLAND.NET
Name Server: A.NS.INTERLAND.NET
Updated Date: 26-jun-2003
Creation Date: 21-jun-1996
Expiration Date: 20-jun-2004"
The status means that the person who registered the domain name has
not renewed it before it expired. The domain name is then placed on
registrar-hold for a certain length of time, which varies depending on
the registrar and gives the original registrant a chance to renew,
until finally it is released again for purchase by anyone.
" A "REGISTRAR-HOLD" is normally applied to your domain name when it
expires... REGISTRAR-HOLD will prevent the domain name from working."

You can still see what the web site looked like in Google's cache:
You will notice in the links at the bottom of the site, that Veternet
used to offer a free email service. This is probably the source of the
address you have.
Not surprisingly, when I went to http://www.verifyemail.com to verify
whether this address is still valid, I got the following message:
"Status: Could not validate at this time.
Server Message: Unable to contact mail server"
The Google cache of the Veternet site indicates it beloned to Veternet
Incorporated. I have found another web site which appears to be
linked to this company:
