i have a form on my asp page for an email address

people are putting multiple addresses in this textbox either separated with a [space] [,] or a [;]

example: bob@yahoo.com;mary@aol.com
or
bob@yahoo.com mary@aol.com
or
bob@yahoo.com,mary@aol.com

i need a function that can separate these into two variables
then assign to session variables

The Line

session("email" & intEmail + 1) =

will this result in  session("email"1)

if so

No, it should interpret as
session("email1") = "emailaddress1"
session("email2") = "emailaddress2"

As long as the session variables can be assigned that way....should work....
