    I find I have to enter me email address quite often and would like to
    store it to a hotkey combo on my Microsoft multi media keyboard 1.0A.
    I tried storing my email address into a file called say "fred.txt", I
    stored the command "type fred.txt" to the "messenger hot key" ,
    What happens is that notepad opens with my email address as the only
    phrase in it, I am able to copy this to the clipboard and then paste
    it into say a form that I may be filling out.
    Is ther a more ellegant way of doing this?
