One text string instead of multiple rows

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I am trying to get one string of email addresses seperated by semi-colon so I can paste it into an email address field.  I can get the data in rows:

1  joe@gmail.com
2 sall@verizon.net
3 Mary@yahoo.com

I want one string returned 'joe@gmail.com;sall@verizon.net;Mary@yahoo.com'

I have searched and found some similar things, but all involved PHP or some other programming I'm not familiar with.  I'm using SQL Management Studio 2008 and I am trying to do this using TSQL. . . I thought it would be easy, but. . .not so much.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!
