The new iPadForums.net website has been designed from the ground up to work perfectly from any mobile, tablet, or desktop computer using the built in internet browser. Create a shortcut to iPadForums.net on your home screen by following these steps: Create an icon for iPadForums.net

    You can't. it's the design of the forum software to make e-mail and web site links "hot" - that way they are clickable to random browsers. The only way to post and e-mail address and to NOT have it be a link is to put a space around the ampersand sign (the @). This will break the link and the software won't recognize it as an e-mail address.

    And, just on the off-chance that the e-mail address you used as your example is real - I've removed it. Mainly because it's against the rules to put e-mails in posts but also as an anti-spammer service.

    Hope this clarifies.

    Sounds like you have a shortcut in place to autofill your email address any time you type the word "email". As the email address appears, click the X to ignore it. Also check Settings -> General -> Keyboard Under Shortcuts to see if it is listed. Not sure how to remove a shortcut though.

    To remove a shortcut, drag across it from right to left and the word "Delete" will appear. Tap it and the shortcut will be gone.
