    I've gotten really used to not having to type my whole email addy on iOS5 that I miss it when on OSX. How can I replicate this functionality on my Mac?

    For those who don't know of it, I mean typing 'jse' for example and having johnsmith@email.com suggested.

    TypeIt4Me or TextExpander can do that.
    I use TextExpander, but only for standard answers I give here on MR.

    not sure where in Lion

    but in preferences there should be a language and text option, within this it allows substitution

    I just tried adding jse with an email as the replacement and it works fine
