I have some email address's ...

xys@sdsd.43fdg.net
wetb256@hotmail.com
(made up for example)

I want to b able to check of the email addess contains "@hotmail.com" or what ever I decide.

if it doesn't contain What I want to check for I want to remove all text before the @ symbol.

So "xys@sdsd.43fdg.net" would become "@sdsd.43fdg.net"

Hi

there are alot of ways to get done what you want........... like here -->

Dim emailAdd(50) As String

emailAdd(0) = "xys@sdsd.43fdg.net"
emailAdd(1) = "wetb256@hotmail.com"
emailAdd(2) = "@ytsascs.com"
emailAdd(3) = ""


For i = 0 To UBound(emailAdd)
    splittedAdd = Split(emailAdd(i), "@")
    If UBound(splittedAdd) > 0 Then
        username = splittedAdd(0)
        domain = "@" & splittedAdd(1)
        Debug.Print "Domain: " & domain
        Debug.Print "username: " & username
    Else
        Debug.Print emailAdd(i) & " is invalid."
    End If
Next
