I am doing some maintenance on our email user database.  I have the following statement that selects the latest email from the duplicate emails.

SELECT
      EmailAddress,
      MAX(USERID) AS LatestUserID
FROM
      Account
GROUP BY
      EmailAddress
HAVING
      Count(EmailAddress) > 1

What I want to do, is in the SAME statement, select all the emails that are not duplicates. So I have a unique email address on each row.
Thanks in advance

Actually, if I understand it right you can just do:

SELECT
      EmailAddress,
      MAX(USERID) AS LatestUserID
FROM
      Account
GROUP BY
      EmailAddress
