    Hi all,

    At present I have 3 email addresses, all of which must be accessed online, and therefore require me to enter my email address. Is there a small utility, either included with MacOS X or available to download, that will allow me to record and assign certain keystrokes to each of my addresses in an effort to save me time in the future?

    Example

    SHIFT+COMMAND+1 = email address 1
    SHIFT+COMMAND+2 = email address 2
    SHIFT+COMMAND+3 = email address 3


    Thanks very much

    I think you used the wrong description in the title. It sounds like you're looking for malware which hackers use. Your post makes sense though. :)

    I use TextExpander for these types of things, there are some alternatives softwares to that. You can also assign a trigger in the free Quicksilver, in which you paste a certain word with a keyboard-shortcut.
