By trying to apply the subscript operator ('[<index>]'). If it raises a
TypeError, then it's not subscriptable.

But, as Larry Bates already pointed out, your real problem is a logic
error: you get an unsubscriptable object where you assumed you had a
subscriptable one.

python -c "print '@'.join(['.'.join([w[::-1] for w in p.split('.')]) for
p in 'onurb at xiludom.gro'.split('@')])"
