    I use several different browsers and have autofill enabled on all of them but it seems autofill only works on about half the web sites I visit.
    I have to enter my email address username etc about 20 times a day.

    How Can I assign my email address to an unused key in OSX and/or IOS?

    Thanks for reading'

    In the core of a black hole.
    You could also use an Application like ClipMenu or any similar programs like CopyPaste Pro amongst others.

    Check out the 'Language & Text' preference pane in the System Preferences. If you click on the 'Text' tab, you should be able to enable/disable symbol and text substitution and also define your own custom substitutions. While it's not a hotkey, you should be able to define a substitution that drops in your email address (for example: '_em_' to '').
