Validation Rule Using BEGINS and TEXT Functions

I'd like to create a validation rule that prevents a user from saving a task with a type of "email" when the subject of the task does not begin with "email". The subject and type are native activity fields -text and picklist data types respectively.
For example, if a task subject begins with "Call" the task type could not be "email". It would have to be "call" or "other" for example.
The frame work for my validation rule is below but I am getting an error of "Error: Incorrect number of parameters for function IF(). Expected 3, received 2"
Any ideas? Thanks.


IF(NOT(BEGINS (Subject, "Email")), NOT(CONTAINS(TEXT(Type), "Email")))

IF statements need 3 Parameters, try using an "AND" instead.
